An outbreak of covid in a business is incredibly damaging. It can have a severe impact on the workforce, halting production at a significant cost. Companies have trusted MedChecks to prevent such an outbreak and if one does occur, to put protocols in place to minimise its impact.

With expert support, they can address any concerns about testing and offer 24/7 medical advice. This helps to allay the fears of the staff and the business owner in the event that a positive test occurs.

MedChecks offer three different types of Covid tests: PCR, Antigen and Antibody. The PCR and Antigen tests indicate if someone is currently infected with Covid, while the antibody test can be used to detect if someone has previously had the virus. Results for the PCR test are delivered within 12 hours and the Antigen and Antibody tests give results within minutes.

An increasingly important aspect of MedChecks service is in supporting businesses whose staff are required to travel.

MedChecks can perform on-site PCR tests and provide ‘fit to fly’ certification for travel. Results and certification are provided within hours of the test being taken and certificates are accepted globally. In addition, they are able to advise on travel and testing requirements in line with travel authority guidelines.

MedChecks are listed as a UKAS recognised provider of the Test-To-Release scheme. Alongside advice on requirements for testing depending on the country you are travelling from, they provide a Booking Reference Number for use in the Passenger Locator Forms. Day two, five and eight tests can also be performed as required.

Dr John T. Doherty, CEO of MedChecks is a Consultant Anaesthetist in Altnagelvin Hospital and has been working at the frontline during the global pandemic. He highlights the need for a rapid response:

Because of my role in ICU, I see first-hand just how dangerous covid can be. Our tests deliver rapid and accurate results, ensuring that if there is a positive case it can be identified and isolated quickly. We can stop covid in its tracks, keeping your workforce safe, minimising disruption and empowering you to keep your business moving forward.”
