A Coronavirus testing unit for health and social care staff will be developed at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium.
Work on the drive-through unit, the second in the Swansea Bay area, is due to start next Wednesday (May 6th) and should be finished just two days later.
The six-lane facility will complement the testing unit at Margam in Port Talbot, which opened in early March.
Around 120 people a day can be tested at the Margam unit, while the Liberty will be able to test up to an additional 360 people daily.
It’s yet another example of fantastic partnership working in these difficult times, with Swansea Bay University Health Board, Swansea Council and Swansea City AFC joining forces at the Liberty.
Having a second testing facility will allow easier access for health and social care staff living in the Swansea area.
It also provides the option for increased capacity if that is required in line with the all Wales testing plan.
The Liberty testing unit will be located in the VIP car park and will have its own dedicated vehicle entrance. Other car parking areas around the Liberty Stadium will not be affected.
Please note that this for health and social care staff who will be attending by appointment only. It is not for the general public.
