Tender description

Post-Covid economic recovery means every organisation is now a ‘health business’ and this will manifest in ways that have never been required before. While there will be people who will need to return to existing work locations, many will continue to work from home and for many others near home working at local hubs will offer huge advantages.

It is vital that in all these locations people can go to work confident that they are located in a healthy environment where the chances of infection are minimised.

This requires a testing process that is as robust, effective, timely and accurate as possible: we need to be able to

1) Better identify who needs a test;

2) Speed up the process of getting a reliable sample suitable for testing;

3) Create faster test turnarounds; and

4) Faster ways of getting tests results back to citizens and other stakeholders — securely and accurately. All of these things need to be useful to both health professionals, and to businesses.

We are aware that it is unlikely a single solution will solve all four of the requirements, so we are happy to consider any proposal that has the potential to solve one or more.

How can innovation help NHS Scotland to support employers to ensure the health of their people?
