Regular Coronavirus swab schedules can be the easiest to implement logistically - we're able to support you with nurse or paramedic support, or simply organise couriers if you're able to take swabs yourselves. Different laboratories have different turnaround times and may have different restrictions so we find the best laboratory for your Covid swab testing needs.
Airlines and nations are now giving windows of testing from 3 days to 5 days - this, when held to laboratory restrictions such as turnaround time and operating hours, as well as courier restrictions, make for challenging scenarios, especially when weekends are involved. There may be days you simply cannot fly on due to the combination of logistical issues. Let us take the strain and investigate what is possible for you.
The COVID Testing problem for Businesses and Organisations.
Increasingly, businesses and other organisations are implementing their own Corporate Covid 19 policies and procedures, and being able to offer an in house reactive testing service is integral to providing an effective solution – especially in times of extreme pressure on the NHS testing service. Knowing quickly whether or not an employee or team member is infected with the virus will enable decisive management action, and if a negative result is recorded, a quick return to work will be possible.
PCR Swab testing is an essential component of a workplace testing strategy. You need to make sure that you plan a solution that is relevant for YOUR organisation, and we can help.
The Blue Horizon COVID Business Solution.
The Blue Horizon COVID-19 Test Solution. Blue Horizon Medicals offers a comprehensive corporate service to address the next challenge facing companies in this Covid era – how to safely return to work, and how to keep the workforce Covid 19 free. We can offer a screening solution for personnel returning to work, particularly relevant to closed workspaces such as offshore installations, or where there may be recirculating air such as factories or aircraft.
Stay in control of COVID testing in your Business.
Self testing en masse is quite acceptable but we can also provide a trained team of swab collectors, led by a registered nurse or or paramedic, to attend your workplace, and swiftly collect and dispatch samples to our partner laboratories, where results will be ready within 24 hours of receipt at the laboratory. This cycle can be repeated on a regular or ad hoc basis as required by your business. Long shelf life pre-paid kits, ready for use, with all carriage costs included and rapid turnaround of results (again within 24 hours of receipt) are available for purchase to be kept in house, ready for any outbreaks.
Highly accurate PCR tests.
Our next generation PCR tests are highly accurate - enabling individuals and organisations to be pragmatic about isolation reducing the need for repeated 10 day isolations for symptomatic individuals. Positive results will be relayed to PHE to enable Track and Trace to be implemented. Consider too highly sensitive and specific antibody tests (using a now government and CE approved process) to determine who has already had the infection in the workforce – and who may reasonably be assumed to have some degree of immunity at least. This will help to inform decisions about placement of staff in more exposed or customer facing roles, and help you to decide who should self-isolate in the event of minor illness and for how long (in line with existing government guidelines of course).
