GoSafe48 are specialists in the full range of COVID screening services covering Rapid PCR, Rapid Antigen, Rapid Antibody and PCR screening. Expertise in COVID screening and patient management has been built up over the last eight months of the pandemic. Effective and efficient screening protocols have been developed and applied in over 50,000 combined screening tests within public and private organisations including healthcare.
GoSafe48 has partnered with Sure Rapid Testing to oversee our clinical governance. Dr. Nick Flynn and his team ensures common clinical governance procedures for screening processes, travel certification and patient care pathways in the event of positive detections. This also increases the accessibility of screening services across the country. With bases in Cork and Dublin both companies provide mobile screening service and rapid response service in the event of an outbreak within a workplace.
The mental health and the economy of Ireland has taken a heavy blow over the last twelve months. We need to look at ways to allow people to return safely to the workplace, social settings, and travel. Along with the gradual roll out of vaccines and continued adherence to public health guidelines, rapid easily-accessed low-cost COVID screening can play a major role in the safe opening of our economy. We have developed a team to provide one of the largest COVID screening services in the country.
