A Radfield Home Care franchise unit has taken advantage of the availability of Covid-19 testing kits to help keep its staff safe.
The branch covering Stamford, Peterborough and Rutland has announced the introduction of the testing scheme now resources are readily available.
The home care franchise business, which is based in Great Casterton, will ask its staff members to check for a coronavirus diagnosis every week. Care professionals will take a test kit home with them, submit their sample and receive a result in three to five days.
Radfield Home Care is one of the first domiciliary care agencies in the region to take up mass testing across its workforce. Thanks to the NHS Test and Trace system, businesses registered with the Care Quality Commission can access weekly PCR tests for their staff members.
Karen Nash, Registered Care Manager at Radfield Home Care, is enthusiastic about providing the right resources to the franchise unit's hardworking employees.
"Our home care professionals have been doing an incredible job throughout the pandemic, working particularly hard to keep the people they care for safe from COVID. I am delighted our team can now also take this weekly test to further enhance the precautions we have in place."
The business's Director, James Beech, added:
"We see this regular, routine testing as another vital part of our defence and something that we know will provide an extra level of reassurance for our clients and staff."
Radfield Home Care was launched in 1982 after Dr Hannah MacKechnie and Alex Green developed a family care home run by their parents. It offers investors the opportunity to provide quality in-home care across their local area.
