Risk assessment/ COVID hub

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lanarkshire NHS Board should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lanarkshire NHS Board,

Why in summer did you implicate a COVID testing hub in the middle (2nd) floor of a very busy health centre in Airdrie, with zero precautions for the staff and patients utilising the building. For over 2 months people where coming and going using a single entrance exit and sharing corridors, lifts etc?

Can you please share under the FOI act.
1. Exactly how many suspected COVID 19 cases where tested on this site in 2020

2. How many confirmed cases resulted from these tests in 2020

3. How many deaths where a result of these tests in 2020

4. The risk assessment carried out before implicating this hub on the second floor of a very busy building.

Yours faithfully,
Miss Findlay
