NPH Group has joined forces with Newcastle International Airport and MDNA Life Sciences to provide a quality and reliable COVID-19 PCR testing experience and will donate £1.00 per test to the Hospice

The COVID-19 tests can be booked now, and passengers can  attend the testing facility at Newcastle Airport. Prices are set by the testing providers and the Regulatory Approved PCR test is currently only £99.00.

The new COVID-19 testing facility at the airport is based in the ‘Premium Meet and Greet’ car park building. The facility provides a convenient location for passengers, with free onsite parking available. The service is being supported by a state of the art testing laboratory within easy reach of the airport, ensuring the price is kept to a minimum and the results can be turned around quickly.

Mark Philpott, CEO at NPH Group said:

“We are proud to be working with Newcastle Airport to make COVID-19 testing accessible, affordable and reliable for all travellers.

“We have worked hard to ensure the PCR test is as easy as possible for passengers. People can simply visit our website to book a test at a date and time to suit. They can then arrive for their test and receive their results within 36-48 hours of their appointment via email.

“The service is all about getting Newcastle Airport Flying again and supporting our local community, so we are making a donation of £1.00 for every test sold, to St Oswald's Hospice, the chosen charity of NPH Group”.

Jane Hogan, Head of Fundraising at St Oswald’s Hospice said:

“We are so grateful to NPH Group for choosing St Oswald’s as their charity partner. We rely on the generous support of our business community, and at the end of what has been a challenging year for fundraising, we are delighted to be benefitting from the sale of the Covid tests. The money raised will support the hospice through the long winter and allow us to continue providing quality care to North East adults and children when they need us the most.”
