Liz Kendall comments on the delay faced by care home staff and residents for coronavirus testing

Liz Kendall MP, Shadow Minister for Social Care, commenting on the delay faced by care home staff and residents for coronavirus testing, said:

“It’s appalling that one of the largest care providers in the UK has to wait at least five weeks for the next round of testing to become available, despite the Government promising weekly testing would be available to care homes earlier this month.

“This isn’t good enough. The Government needs to get a grip on this problem and ensure that weekly testing is put in place for all care staff so we can keep care home residents safe.”
