*NEW* Lateral Flow Testing volunteers

*These roles have now been filled. Thank you for the wonderful support*


The Public Health team at Somerset County Council are looking for volunteers to support health care professionals administer lateral flow Covid19 testing at our Somerset sites.

Regular lateral flow tests are arranged for all staff working in health and social care and ensures that the Covid-19 virus is detected before it spreads. This helps to reduce transmission, protect the NHS and save lives. Anyone suspected of having the virus is not tested at this site. *You will be offered a regular Covid test yourself and a vaccination to help keep you and your family safe, you will also be provided with full PPE.
