DAM Health, a Liverpool-based medical company, has launched a 24-hour Covid-19 testing clinic that has the capability to issue 'fit-to-fly' certificates in as little as one day.
The company, which specialises in medical equipment and Covid-19 testing, said that the demand for rapid Covid-19 testing has soared as many Brits are looking forward to travelling around the United Kingdom during the temporary easing of restrictions.
Professor Frank Joseph, director at DAM Health UK, said: “We’re experiencing huge demand for testing at our Rodney Street clinic and for our home testing kits. There has been a significant increase in demand since the beginning of December.
"The demand is so great that we have taken the decision to offer 24 hour testing. People are incredibly anxious to be tested and get the required documentation for travel.
"We are also getting more and more families coming to us who want the reassurance of a negative test result before extending their bubbles during the temporary easing of restrictions.
"The government advises against using NHS testing for travel purposes so we’re expanding our capacity to help people get tests with same day results. We are offering 24 hour testing between now and Christmas and extended testing hours between Christmas and New Year's Eve."
