ARE TESTING TIMES POSITIVE FOR FM?


The FM industry can contribute to a


government idea to use post-COVID-19 mass testing to transform the nation’s health, writes Steve Broughton, Founder of emergency soft FM specialist SafeGroup.


No one doubts that COVID-19 will fundamentally change our lives. There is no going back to a pre-COVID-19 normal. This is not just about things that threaten and constrain. There are also major opportunities.


Health Secretary Matt Hancock has a vision of how he wants to grasp those opportunities. He wants to fundamentally change the way we improve health and save lives.


He sees the chance to use the UK’s new mass testing capability developed to fight COVID-19 to support a radical shift towards preventing illness rather than curing it.


He also wants to challenge the British culture of “soldiering on” when illness strikes, which spreads infections to even more people.


Massive diagnostic capacity


In his sights must be the 10,000 flu deaths recorded every year in the UK, alongside the 30,000 pneumonia deaths,

many of them related to flu. Other illnesses may be suitable for the same treatment.


Matt Hancock says he wants the NHS’s new “massive diagnostic capacity” to identify and treat people before they become seriously ill, saving money in the process.

This makes perfect sense. The system will be needed again for the next pandemic. And the best way to maintain such capability is to develop it and use it.
