You will be aware that there is a national effort to increase access to lateral flow rapid result testing for Covid-19.

Birmingham City Council is leading the rapid deployment of testing in the community at scale and is working with BVSC to explore the appetite for community organisations to host and run fixed community based testing sites for the public as well as providing regular testing for their own staff working in close contact or enclosed workplaces on a cyclic basis, similar to the approach used in the NHS and Care Homes.

The Council has asked us to share with you the initial spoke prospectus which helps explain the roles and responsibilities and has some templates to help work out if you would be interested in applying for a spoke. At the moment the focus is on large workplaces with significant footfall of employees working in indoor workplaces.
