The NHS Confederation calls for clarity from the Government on the testing requirements for NHS staff to be made available without delay.
Concerns are growing among NHS leaders that in a matter of days their frontline staff could be made to pay for their own Covid-19 tests so that they can continue working and caring for their patients.
This comes as cases of coronavirus in England are rising again and as the country faces a massive increase in the cost of living.
If NHS staff are still expected to be tested twice a week, they could end up having to pay around £50 a month for tests. This will be on top of rising energy bills, petrol prices and other costs.
