30/11/2020

The NHS have introduced a weekly testing service for all home care workers in England. This is to ensure that home care workers who currently have COVID-19 can; self-isolate, protect those receiving care and prevent & control the spread of the virus. As a registered home care provider with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) we are eligible to participate in the testing service. We have briefed all members of the care team about the scheme and have started to roll-out the weekly testing programme.

We are committed to providing the highest level of care for our clients and committed to ensuring we carry out our duties safely to protect both our clients and care team. We continue to take the best advice of the government, medical and scientific advisors in relation to infection control.

If you have any COVID-19 related questions or queries regarding our team working safely in your home then please contact our Registered Care Manager, Michele Bushell michele@alicechilton.com or call the office on 01625 526850.
