Our volunteer network
During the first peak of Covid-19 in 2020 we pulled together a team of over 30 volunteers and a network of laboratories. Funded by a contribution of £1 million from The Fischer Family Trust we provided testing for GP surgeries and care homes.
Local Authority provision
Funded centrally by DHSC, we've provided testing kits to Local Authorities. Our network of laboratories completed the same rigorous approval process as the Lighthouse Labs. We have delivered thousands of PCR tests to frontline staff in GP surgeries, care homes and homeless shelters.
We were among the first in the country to provide PCR tests for care homes to bring the spread of Covid-19 under control and protect the vulnerable.
Supporting the homeless
We have provided testing to minimise the spread of Covid-19 across homeless communities and to support the early provision of care for those with the virus.
Andy Kirk, from the The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council's 'Access to Housing Team', shares his experience of delivering a PCR testing plan to support rough sleepers into move on accommodation as part of the governments 'Everyone In' programme
"The testing itself was fast and efficient"
"Fantastic! The development of the pilot study was easy... The testing itself was simple and efficient. Each batch of tests was collected at the time specified and the results were received the following day."
Andy Kirk, City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
