Testing for the local community
We offered NHS and University-supplied Covid-19 testing site on our campus
In partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and Portsmouth City Council, we offered Covid-19 testing for our staff, students and the Portsmouth community.
We were the first university in the country to partner with DHSC to deliver this testing service for it's local community
We hope that by increasing the availability of such testing on campus brings a level of reassurance that we are doing all we reasonably can to help provide a safe environment for everyone.
With community testing now widely available, the University-hosted testing site at Eldon building has now closed. We encourage all staff, students and community members to continue to follow NHS advice on regular Covid testing.
