5.10 Respiratory Screening for Healthcare Workers (HCW)

HCW COVID-19 testing continues in some settings. Detailed information on respiratory screening for HCWs can be found on the Scottish Government website.

There is no requirement for any other respiratory pathogen beyond COVID-19 screening amongst HCWs unless recommended by an Incident Management Team, HPT, or occupational health.

Care home settings

Information on COVID-19 testing amongst care home workers can be found in the PHS Care home guidance.

Care home staff should use the COVID testing portal to arrange this.
