Digital hospital start-up Medbelle has launched a sponsorship programme to provide Covid-19 home tests to key workers and people in need in the UK.
As well as private purchases, consumers can choose to ‘sponsor’ up to ten tests, which will be distributed to key workers and people in need by Medbelle. Recipients of the sponsored kits will not face any charge.
People who believe they or someone they live with are at increased risk, or who work in frontline jobs, can apply for a free test on Medbelle’s website. Applications will be assessed by a medical advisor and tests provided based on recipients’ level of need or risk.
