2 years ago
A new COVID travel testing centre, from the UK’s leading diagnostics provider Randox Health, was officially opened this week by Taekwondo Olympic Bronze Medallist Bianca Walkden.
Located centrally in Chavasse Park in the Liverpool ONE shopping complex, the new facility has a capacity of more than 1500 appointments per day, making it the largest COVID travel testing centre in Liverpool.
The facility consists of an on-site testing laboratory and a walk-through sample collection centre where appointments, during which a trained collection officer takes the sample, take no longer than ten minutes.
David Ferguson, Randox Global Sales Director said;
“As the largest COVID-19 testing laboratory in Europe, with a capacity of over 500,000 tests per day, Randox is committed to the provision of reliable and affordable testing for international travel.
“Randox already has strong connections to the city of Liverpool having been the headline sponsor of the Randox Grand National for the last five years, and by setting up our newest testing centre in such a popular tourist destination as Liverpool ONE, we will ensure our service is as accessible as possible for both UK holidaymakers and those returning home after their visit to the city.
“We look forward to supporting their travel plans and making the testing process stress-free.”
The Randox Health testing facility at Liverpool ONE offers a range of asymptomatic testing services for both pre-departure and arrival testing requirements, including next-day Day 2 and Day 8 tests, antigen testing, and express services offering PCR test results in either 12 or 1-3 hours.
For the month of August Randox Health is also offering a £5 discount on all tests at Liverpool ONE.
Craig Wilson, Liverpool ONE Partnerships Director, commented;
“Trusted by Team GB to deliver pre-departure and arrival testing for the Tokyo Olympic Games, Randox Health is renowned in the UK as a leading and reputable supplier of COVID-19 testing, and we are proud to partner with them to bring this service to Liverpool city centre.
“Visitors to Liverpool ONE can, at their convenience, take their test, and while they are waiting for their result, enjoy all that our complex has to offer across shopping, dining and leisure.”
Bianca Walkden, Taekwondo Olympic Bronze Medallist;
“I am honoured to have the opportunity to officially open the Randox Health COVID travel testing centre in my hometown of Liverpool.
“Having used the service myself for Team GB’s predeparture and Day 2 testing requirements pre and post the Olympic Games, I can vouch for the thorough testing and support Randox gave us to ensure we were prepared to arrive safely to the starting line in Tokyo.”
Randox, with almost 40 years of international diagnostics experience, has been at the forefront of COVID-19 testing since the outset of the pandemic. With proven testing capability and well-established logistics and customer support services, Randox are strongly placed to allow international travellers to travel with confidence.
