The people of Liverpool are being asked to share vital feedback on their experience of the UK’s first Covid mass-testing pilot.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has been commissioned by the Department for Health and Social Care to conduct a study into Liverpool’s participation in the nation’s first experience of mass-testing and will be sending a letter to 60,000 homes in the city.

People are being asked to share confidential feedback whether they have chosen to take the test or not. Giving feedback is done online using unique access codes and won’t take longer than 15 minutes. Feedback can also be given over the phone.

Feedback will be used to understand how successful the pilot has been in Liverpool and what improvements can be made before it is rolled out elsewhere in the country.

The ONS is the UK’s recognised national statistical institute and the largest independent producer of official statistics.

As of yesterday, over 80,000 Liverpool residents have been tested since last Friday, 6 November, whether using lateral flow devices or PCR tests, with another almost 10,000 people who live in neighbouring areas also being tested in the city.

The mass-testing pilot is continuing. Full details about the pilot and locations of test centres can be found on the council’s website.
