MedCity has adapted quickly to support the efforts to control the pandemic. They have been involved in increasing university lab testing capacity to respond to the national demand.
In April 2020, MedCity established the London Testing Alliance, now called the London Covid-19 Alliance. The Alliance is a coordinated network of universities and institutions – including King’s College London, Imperial College London, UCL and Queen Mary University of London.
In order to ensure a partnership-led response to the pandemic, I have personally involved MedCity in meetings with Government and agencies in London. The GLA is also in communication with the London Covid-19 Alliance on an ongoing basis.
