NHS staff ‘can access covid-19 testing’, government insists

NHS staff are to be given access to testing for covid-19, the government said this morning, but it remains unclear how the policy will be applied.

A Department of Health and Social Care spokesman said at lunchtime: “Our testing regime is set up to provide for those who need tests the most. This includes key workers, such as NHS staff. We will set out more details shortly.”

It remains unclear how this will be applied.

The announcement follows concerns from healthcare professionals they are not being tested for the virus, even if they had been exposed to infected patients.
