Rehana Ali started this petition to Government and bradford city council's and

Why should just nhs staff be tested for coronavirus but not other health professions such as care home/nursing/home care staff,we are all key workers and provide the best quality care to our patients.

We can't sit at home and isolate ourselfs as we still have vulnerable people that rely on us to deliver there care.some of the care staff do have underlying health problems but still choose to come to work because they cant afford to stay off work,plus if they do decide to isolate them selfs,then it leaves staffing levels down and we cant provide the best quality care to our patients.

Patients are being sent back to Care home/nursing homes from hospital's after there treatment and are being isolated to there bedrooms for precaution incase they have contracted the coronavirus .

All I'm saying is that we as Care workers in private care sectors aswel as nhs should all have the opportunity to be tested for the virus as we have young families at home and vulnerable patients with underlying health conditions.

Please keep us safe too!...

The Nhs are doing a great JOB!...����

But so are the care homes and nursing homes and home care staff.

All our jobs are very challenging in their own way but we also need to be protected.

In the private health sector we are also running short on equipment to safe guard our selfs such as face masks and hand sanitizers,i am fully aware that coronavirus testing kits are not enough in the uk,but i strongly feel there should be some testing kit available for Residential care home to,and i strongly feel the government should invest in more testing kits.

Thank you x
