Here’s how families in Sheffield can cut price of PCR tests needed for foreign travel
DAM Health has revealed a brand new way of making travel as affordable as possiblefor families across Sheffield.
Dam Health will launch ‘Kids Go Free’ on Monday, May 17, effectively halving the cost of testing for families and their children.
Each child aged 17 years or under can be tested for free with a paying adult in one of DAM Health’s clinics, with trained professionals, with the same-day government-approved results safe and accurate for everyone. Prices start from £99.
Travel and holidays have been all but impossible for the last 15 months, so this is a pivotal moment as families prepare to experience again what they have missed - being able to travel abroad together to destinations again across Europe and beyond, sun-kissed beaches, resorts and far-flung adventures.
Dam Health’s director of medicine, Professor Frank Joseph, says: “We have been scaling up the company in anticipation of some key moments here in the UK, and the first is travelling abroad opening up again.
"It’s an emotional moment for many, as holidays define a lot of who we are and where we go and the UK, as an island, has travel at its heart. We will have around 50 clinics open by the end of May and anticipate at least 250,000 tests by the end of June.
“With Kids Go Free, we are keeping the same level of service, accuracy and peace of mind with our PCR tests, making travelling abroad as affordable as possible.
“We are still seeing this trend for in-clinic testing and the peace of mind this brings for all people, rather than self-testing at home or with postal kits.”
Travel will legally be allowed from Monday, May 17, with countries being split into three categories; green, amber, red, depending on their Covid-19 risk status.
Arrivals from green list countries will need to take a pre-departure test as well as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test on or before day two of their arrival back into the UK – but will not need to quarantine on return (unless they receive a positive result) or take any additional tests.
DAM Health provides rapid testing with same day PCR results, a unique service during the pandemic.
