Scottish Government – care at home testing workshops

Please see below for information from the Scottish Government on workshops on the expansion of testing to care at home.


Expansion of testing to adult care at home (Adult Day Centres/services; Sheltered Housing and Multiple Occupancies; Personal Assistants; wider Care at Home staff)

To support the expansion of testing to the above staff and settings, we have arranged a number of online workshops for providers and staff in the sector. These will provide an update on the programme and arrangements, and provide a forum for you to ask questions and share any concerns.

You can drop in to part or attend all of these sessions. Given the size of the sector we expect a lot of interest in the workshops and therefore unfortunately  we cannot reserve places. We also suggest you log in a few minutes before the start time.

Please note that full training packs and materials will be available within the next few days via the link below, It’s important to note that the website will not be live until the documents are uploaded.  gov.scot/care-at-home-covidtesting
