NHS workers are now being tested for coronavirus at the Wembley branch of Ikea.
Testing of NHS staff is being rolled out across the country – NHS workers with symptoms and those who live with people who have symptoms will be checked first.
This includes critical care doctors and nurses.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the furniture giant said: “We’re enormously proud of the NHS and proud to be able to offer Wembley as an additional medical facility.
“We have also responded to requests from intensive care units and doctors across the country by delivering tens of thousands of our disposable paper tape measures, to help them continue their amazing care for their patients.”
