SHS Partners Frameworks and Accreditation
Working closely with Public Health England (PHE), NHS, and other partners, we guarantee our testing is accurate and meets the highest standards. SHS Partners has extensive healthcare experience working across the UK. We sit on several national procurement frameworks for both insourcing and outsourcing.
– NHS Shared Business Service (SBS)
– Countess of Chester Hospital Commercial Procurement Services Centre of Procurement Expertise
– NHS Wales
Using our expert network, we have engaged with leading laboratories and skilled professionals from across the scientific community to form a strategic partnership. Our accredited and certified laboratories are approved to test for hazard group 2 and 3 pathogens and biohazard level 2 certified with global approval for COVID-19 testing.
Our COVID-19 testing service uses a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, which is highly sensitive at detecting at least ten copies per microliter. We use TaqPathTM RT-PCR COVID-19 | Perkin Elmer SARS-COV2 test kits which involve a nasal or throat swab. All sample handling includes sample aliquoting, RNA extraction, setting up for RT-PCR and will be processed using automatic instruments. We run a single panel for COVID-19 without the need to combine all the other respiratory panels. This single panel approach is recognised to minimise costs and maximise the testing outreach and response.
Importantly, we only use reagents contracted with ThermoFisher Scientific and Perkin Elmer, with no impact on UK allocations.

Testing and results are delivered within 24-48 hours from the point of sample pick-up with test results available electronically via a secure portal.

Our onsite nursing team batch, barcode and package all samples ready for transportation. We organise end-to-end tracked sample pick-up and transportation to the laboratory. Testing and results are delivered within 48 hours from the point of sample pick-up with test results available electronically via a secure portal. From our accredited laboratories, we can run up to +25k tests per day.

Testing and Results
Once the sample is received, our laboratory staff record the details in our Laboratory Information System (LIMS). With a unique barcode accession number for each individual patient with their demographics stored in secure GDPR compliant data centres with an ISO27001 compliant online portal.
All samples are processed inside Class 2A Biosafety cabinets to prevent uncontrolled exposure or cross-contamination. Samples are then processed using an automated extraction platform to isolate any RNA from the SARS-Cov-2 virus. A reverse-transcription, real-time PCR assay is then used to detect the presence of the viral RNA genome.
Results are recorded in the Laboratory Information System (LIS) for online reporting within 48 hours of sample collection.
