I was extremely worried by what I saw this weekend off Nightingale Lane. There was a cheap 'tent' [which was something one would buy at B&Q ] erected in a church carpark next to the bins [?!
] for several hours offering Covid tests to the public who had prepaid . No proper signage, no social distancing markings n the ground, no-one seeing people in and out of the carpark, and kids running around playing in the area. If this is a private company offering tests outside, then are they profiteering from these vulnerable people who attended?
I suspect so.
This is very worrying that they are doing this on private land and not in a controlled environment.
This is the company : https://www.londonmedicallaboratory.co.uk
They have a smart website with photos of so called professionals, and Harley Street 'stock photo shots', although their offices are registered in Stockwell and have nothing to do with Harley Street.
One has to email to get the price list.
There are now 3 reviews today saying that customers haven't received their tests, or haven't been offered anything . No-one answers the phone when you call.
I fear that there could be many of these clinics popping up at present, offering private expensive services that aren't properly regulated as there could be legal loopholes at present? In light of this being such an infectious disease, surely this is alarming that they are practicing in unregulated areas.
I noticed that at the end of their testing day, the testers unzipped their suits and were drinking water out of bottles-no safe disposal of their testing suits first-totally unbelievable.
Does anyone know anything about this company or can shed any light -the reviews aren't great either -I wonder if the company has disappeared already? I hope my fears are unfounded
as this is surely very dangerous in this current climate.
