VCS Workforce Rapid COVID-19 Testing

North Tyneside council has opened a new COVID-19 rapid testing service.

The aim of rapid community testing is to test people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms to identify those who are positive so they can self-isolate immediately. This will stop them from passing on the virus to other colleagues and disrupting service delivery.

Members of the VCS workforce who are unable to work from home will be able to access the new testing site at the Riverside Children’s Centre, North Shields, twice weekly, throughout a 6-week period. If you would like to access this service please email robin.fry@voda.org.uk – there is no deadline for your response.
