Milton Keynes company offers rapid result Covid tests on Christmas Eve with results while you wait
A Bradwell Abbey company is running a special festive Covid teting clinic to give families peace of mind and stop infections spreading over Christmas
ECG medical training company has qualified nurses to perform nose and throat swabs that will give a positive or negative result within just 15 minutes.
It means that people can have extra peace of mind if they're planning to spend Christmas with others in their household, support bubble or childcare arrangement - the only way families can mix under Tier 4 regulations.
CEO Jane Lambert said: "There's difficult balance between desperately wanting to spend time with your loved ones and support bubble and also not wanting to put them at risk from Covid. So the nurses at ECG have stepped up and are running a big clinic in Bradwell Abbey on Christmas Eve – just so you can book a rapid antigen test.
She added: “With Covid infection rates being at an all time high and Milton Keynes being in Tier 4, we are delighted to be able to keep our clinic doors open to support our community. We have 4 clinic rooms open and bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis. Full refunds will be made if we can’t fit you in”
The test, one of three approved by the Governement, is available for adults and children and costs £58.33 plus VAT. ECG also offers a special family package of tests for a discount price.
If the test is positive, ECG will have to inform public health and people will be asked to self-isolate.
ECG, based at The Gatehouse, also performs 'fit to fly' tests as well as antibody tests, again with while-you-wait results, to detect if people have ever had Covid in the past.
