Rob Moy
53:33
What was the cleaning regime when you get a positive case
Penny Wycherley
54:58
Agree about home testing - the NHS do so we could with staff trained. We have trained all our staff but the limited kits meant we couldn't home test
Damian Petts
55:52
My other half works for the NHS and has these kits at home to test before going into work.
Paula Murphy
56:44
whats the average number of test carried out each day?
Rebecca Lynch
57:32
Did you use a booking system for individulas to book their test slot?
Liz Maudslay
01:00:13
Have either colleges had experience of testing high needs students with complex learning difficulties or made any plans for this
Hannah Hirsch
01:00:43
I am interested to know about the roles, were there any GDPR issues with using volunteers or particular staff for the results recording roles?
Lee Pryor
01:01:33
PHE have said to me if contacted by track and trace they would have to self isolate
Lee Pryor
01:01:51
we have had a case this week where this was confirmed
Carlton Downie
01:02:42
are the barcodes on the tests normal 1D barcodes or are they 2D QR codes?
steve nunwick
01:02:46
I don't think that after the test staff/students need to self-isolate as the risk of them having Covid 19 is unchanged
Julie Gilbert
01:03:25
Where do you store the consent forms?
Sally Plumb
01:03:26
if the lateral flow test is positive do we give a pcr kit to take away or do we advise they book themselves through nhs?
steve nunwick
01:04:36
we have been issuing PCR tests to positive tests to speed up process
Alison Gray
01:05:43
Thank you Gerard - Can you please clarify how you achieved 16 tests per station per hour accurately - I can see the potential for tests, bar codes etc to be mixed up!
Penny Wycherley
01:05:59
we Pre-register when we booking staff and students as it cuts down the registration time in the Testing Centre. It is working well
Damian Petts
01:06:15
We do this also
Carlton Downie
01:06:50
what information is required for the registration? is there a potential for registering on the students' behalf after the swab has been taken?
Deborah Williams
01:08:13
Were students/staff able to pre-book their test?
steve nunwick
01:08:40
our group has decided that any test facility needs to be accessed/egressed from an outside space rather than inside the building but long term with higher numbers we will need to relax this
Mark Forder
01:08:45
Did you ask staff/students to do the throat and nose swabbing? I've seen guidance that just one is sufficient?
Sally Plumb
01:09:37
do you recommend getting consent of the whole student/staff body in advance of mass testing?
Rachel Cox
01:10:21
Did you do online consent forms or paper based … or both?
Sarah Stannard
01:11:40
Some NHS Trusts and services are doing nose only - but both nostrils not one. We have asked PHE and not had an answer yet on whether this is acceptable. Schools are very keen to be able to just do nose swabs as they’re concerned that students won’t want to do throat swabs.
Lee Pryor
01:12:40
PHE in my area have said that we can do either nasal or throat swab or both
Rachel O'Riordan
01:13:18
Sorry I need to leave for a meeting. Thank you and I look foward to receiving the slides.
Dave Djordjevic
01:14:48
The guidance now is that you must give them a PCR test to take home with them if they are positive in the lateral flow test
Gary Woolley
01:15:26
has the webinar been recorded because I didn't get a link until 2.50
steve nunwick

Lisa Hart

Is there a possibility to set up a network group?
Julie Gilbert
01:16:53

Liz Maudslay
01:16:56
guidance for testing high needs students is attached in last Friday's AoC CE letter
