Swabbing Policy and Procedure #6
This policy has been updated to reflect the recent ‘Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Provision of homecare’ guidance issued by the government and to reflect the changes to those that can request a test when they have symptoms of the coronavirus. New procedural points have also been added including ones on:
– Testing for patients and discharge to the community
– Swab Test Results
Information around the new test and trace service has also been included alongside some additional references, while existing ones have been checked to ensure they remain current.
