Eligibility criteria


Self-isolating because NHS worker is symptomatic:

In this instance  the NHS keyworker is the only person in the household eligible to receive a COVID-19 test. No other members of their household are eligible.

Self-isolating because an adult (over 18) in their household is symptomatic, but the key worker is not

In this instance only the adult household member(s) of the NHS keyworker is eligible to come to a test centre to receive a COVID-19 test. It is that household member(s) whose data must be collected and sent to The National Test Centres – with the key workers name noted. The key worker will not receive a test. If more than one household member is symptomatic, but not the NHS worker, then all household members should be tested.

Self-isolating because a child (under 18) in their household member is symptomatic, but the key worker is not

In this instance, only the under 18 household member of the NHS keyworker is eligible to come to a test centre to receive a COVID-19 test. Because the household member is under 18 they can only attend our Greenwich ‘self-test’ centre, where a parent or guardian must perform the test on the under 18 year old. For under 18s collect the parent or guardian’s data.

Self-isolating for other reasons

If the NHS keyworker is self-isolating for other reasons and is not themselves symptomatic, they are not eligible to be tested.
