Drive-through COVID-19 testing and swabbing service at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expanded

According to the club’s official site, the North Middlesex University Hospital have expanded their drive-through COVID-19 testing and swabbing service at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Initially opened on April 8, the stadium became the first such Premier League venue to be used for testing. It was initially intended for North Middlesex staff and families.

Following the expansion, extra testing capacity is now being made available for free to key workers from other health and social care organizations. This includes care homes and the wider public sector having COVID-19 symptoms.

Those who are clinically appropriate for swabbing will be allocated a testing slot within 24 hours of their call. They will later receive their results either by phone or text.

The Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital, Maria Kane said the NHS can only do so much without their partners, especially those in social care.

“So we’re very pleased to be able to extend our staff testing facilities free of charge to partners in the care sector and other health providers”

She also expressed her gratitude to Spurs for their support and commitment to the local community in these challenging times.

Tottenham have been doing their bit in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. The club had confirmed earlier this month that the Tottenham Hotspur stadium would be turned into a hospital unit.

The facility will be used to house the North Middlesex Hospital’s Women’s Outpatient Services as well as a COVID-19 test centre. Pregnant women will also be treated here.
