How long does it take to do the test.
The first time we say book people 10 minutes apart so we can explain the procedure & complete paperwork, thereafter we suggest book appointments 5 minutes apart.
Who gets the test results?
An email will be sent to whoever you nominate in your company & the medic.
What action is taken for someone with a positive result?
Following the latest government guidelines Production/HR &/or the Medic would arrange to:
1. re-test the person
2. advise them to inform their own GP & self-isolate for 14 days.
How do the tests go to the lab?
You have an option of special deliver post which is free, or you can arrange a courier.
Is the Laboratory approved?
If there is a positive result, who notifies track & trace?
Your Coved Supervisor or Medic has a legal obligation to report the presence of COVID-19 to the (PHE) Public Health England. The laboratory will notify the PHE within 7 days.
What about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
If the law requires the use of personal data, the reporting of first name, last name & address can be given.
Does the test have to be completed by a Medic?
Yes, this is a stipulation from the laboratory. You can request one of our medics or provide your own if trained.
Where do the test go to?
Our laboratory is in Cambridge.
What is the turnaround time?
Turnaround time guaranteed 48 hours from when the lab receives the tests. However, this is often shorter depending on how busy they are.
What is the laboratory opening and closing times?
9:00am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
Can we order an express test?
Subject to availability of our medics this is possible, however it carries a higher fee from the laboratory. The laboratory test kits in batches, so the odd one or two can only go in on their own, so hold up their production time.
How is production and the individuals notified of the test results?
We encourage Production and staff to log into our app. Results are then emailed to production & the medic automatically. You have control when to publish the results which enables individuals who have signed up to the app, receive their result on their mobile phone. You will automatically have a record through the app.
Alternatively, the lab will email production & or the medic.
Do we need a room for testing?
The area should be as sparce as possible as the medic will have to clean between each person tested. Tables and chairs are fine to be left.
Can we have tested someone in their car?
