Lateral flow testing is important - using the testing kits regularly will help identify those who have COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms, helping to keep our staff, patients and the wider community safe. The opportunity to access this voluntary, twice weekly testing is now available to all NHSGGC staff who are working from our facilities (in both patient facing and non patient facing roles).
For access to kits or replacement kits, please speak to your line manager. A new type of kit is coming into circulation for Health and Social Care staff called Orient Gene. However NHSGGC has plenty supply of the current Innova kits and we will continue to distribute these in the coming months. Information to support the changeover will be made in advance of it taking place.
Further information on all aspects of Lateral Flow testing, is available below.
