Uncertainty continues to surround an opening date for the North East’s Lighthouse Laboratory Covid testing site.
Local health chiefs are still awaiting government approval to open the facility, which has been built at the Baltic Park industrial estate in Gateshead.
The hub, which will create 1,100 jobs, was due to open in December and Newcastle's public health director Eugene Milne said it was “ready to go” at the end of January.
It was hoped the Lighthouse Lab would open earlier this month, but bosses say they still need “some final information” from the government before it becomes operational.
Once at full capacity, it should be able to process up to 80,000 Covid tests per day.Copyright: Getty ImagesQuote Message: We are waiting for some final information from the Department of Health and Social Care before the first Covid test samples can be processed.” from Martin Wilson Integrated Covid Hub North East
