SARS-CoV-2 confirmatory testing for NHS staff in Dumfries and Galloway

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Dumfries and Galloway NHS Board,
I have heard that NHS staff in Dumfries and Galloway NHS Board have been requested to take a confirmatory Pillar 1 (NHS Lab) test for SARS-CoV-2 if they have received a positive test result carried out in a Pillar 2 lab (Lighthouse Labs).

Please could you send me policy documents, staff briefings (delivered via Multi-Disciplinary Teams meetings or other means), emails to staff or a similar notification to staff that defines the policy at Dumfries and Galloway NHS Board for confirmatory Pillar 1 SARS-CoV-2 testing following a Pillar 2 positive test result.

Yours faithfully,

Steven Hammer

Hello
Can you clarify if you are referring to Lateral flow device tests rather
than tests undertaken at a surveillance centre sent on to a lighthouse
lab?
Kind regards
FOI Officer
NHS Dumfries and Galloway

Dear dg.feedback,
Thank you for your reply.

You asked:
"Can you clarify if you are referring to Lateral flow device tests rather than tests undertaken at a surveillance centre sent on to a lighthouse lab?"

I am referring to any positive test results that NHS staff in D&G received from a Lighthouse Lab. I am not referring to lateral flow device tests.

Yours sincerely,

Steven Hammer
