A drive-through coronavirus testing centre has opened at Edinburgh Airport for key workers.
Frontline NHS staff will be the first to be offered PCR swabs to identify whether they have the virus as part of government attempts to drastically increase Covid-19 testing.
The airport testing centre is being operated in partnership with Sodexo, with Boots medical staff administering some tests and others being self-administered.
Those tested will receive their results within 48 hours.
Key workers who test negative for coronavirus will be able to return to work as soon as possible, while those who test positive can take time off to try to recover.
The testing site is the latest facility to be set up across the UK to check key staff and identify if they currently have the virus, with a further two Scottish sites open at Glasgow and Aberdeen airports.
Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said: “This new testing centre at Edinburgh Airport, which is funded by the UK Government, will help key workers continue to do their life-saving work and look after those who need it most.
“The UK Government has committed to expand our testing capacity right across the UK and this new centre is now one of three in Scotland.
“We will continue to work for everyone in the UK to save lives and protect our NHS.”
UK Health Minister Lord Bethell said: “The UK Government is rapidly scaling up the national effort to boost testing capacity for coronavirus.
“This new service will help end the uncertainty of whether NHS and social care staff need to stay at home or be able to return to work.”
