Online PCR booking form (colleagues only)
*** Please note that this information is for CHFT colleagues and our partner staff only. If you are a member of the public please see the Government website here. ***
Due to the unprecedented demand placed on the Occupational Health team supporting colleagues who require a PCR test for themselves or the primary contact and difficulty to meet the demand we have made it easier for you to access a PCR test by creating an online booking form which is now live. Please see links below for the online booking form.

Click here for staff member with a household contact who has symptoms or positive lateral flow test
Please do not contact the Occupational Health Department for results as contact will be made with you by a member of the team as soon as the results are available.
EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT TESTING
When you request a PCR test you WILL NOT get an appointment. There are two ways you can come along for a test:
- You can arrange a test via a walk in centre or the Goverment website, or
- Use the CHFT drive-through swabbing team who are available from 8.15am -12.00pm and 1pm -5pm daily
The CRH team is located in the women and children's carpark (ambulance bay for outpatients)
The HRI team is located in the car park just past the children's nursery on North drive
What you need to bring
You will have to write your full name, date of birth and NHS number in the tube of the swab, as well as on the lab form which accompanies the sample. It would help us if you can bring a pen with you please!
Once had the test the individual MUST isolate pending the result (see action card above).
Please refer to the action cards by clicking here with regards to next steps following your results.
