Prioritising NHS workers for coronavirus testing is crucial

Blood sample

Responding to the news that the 3.5 million antibody tests will prioritise key workers including NHS staff, Layla McCay, director of the NHS Confederation, which represents organisations across the healthcare sector, said:

“The 3.5 million antibody tests will be crucial in enabling us to maintain the workforce that is fighting this battle to save so many lives.

“They cannot be received on the frontline quickly enough. We believe frontline staff across hospitals, community healthcare services and primary and social care should be given priority and so today’s announcement that key workers will be at the front of the queue is welcome.”
