Care home testing
If your care homes ask you how they can get residents tested or they have any queries about a possible outbreak they have to call PHE directly, who also communicate any test results directly back to the care homes. Tel. 0300 303 8537…option 5.

Any patients discharged from hospital to a care home that’s still awaiting results, their results are communicated through the Care Home Intervention Team (CHIT) to the care home.

 This is a moving task and will be updated every few days. Please talk to your care homes and confirm they are looking at
the emails and their system (ie who is reading them and when) so there is no miscommunication.
