Finally a breakthrough! Following intensive efforts we’ve got a new permanent coronavirus testing facility opening up tomorrow in Gants Hill in the Cranbrook Road car park.
I’ve raised the issue of testing relentlessly in Parliament, but Jas Athwal – Leader of Redbridge Council, Cllr Mark Santos and the Redbridge Council Public Health team have done a particularly brilliant job making the case. It’s been a real team effort.
I really hope this helps to address some of the really pressing issues that the Government’s failure on testing has created for local schools, health services and businesses.
I’ll keep you posted, but it’s nice to have some good news at last.
