North London Partners in health and care

Staff Testing for Covid-19

NCL are part of the London-wide approach being taken to maximise the numbers of staff being tested for Covid-19, try to match up capacity and demand as well as coordinating testing resources. Work is underway to understand demand and testing run rates better across London.

This week, drive through testing was launched and in North Central London over 700 staff from a range of care settings have been tested in this way since Tuesday 31 March and from yesterday (Tuesday 7 April) capacity doubled from 100 to 200 tests a day. NCL planning is well underway to understand how we can best use this new capacity across health and care partners
