Based in south Liverpool DAM Health already operates 35 COVID testing clinics in the UK as well as facilities in Spain and is now expanding to Mexico. Tony McDonough reports
A Liverpool company that specialises in COVID testing is expanding to South America, opening 12 new clinics in Mexico.
From its base in Mossley Hill in south Liverpool DAM Health already operates 35 COVID testing clinics in the UK as well as facilities in Spain. It is also planning to open clinics in Malta, Italy, Greece, Portugal and France.
DAM has opened six of its new Mexico clinics in the popular Playa Med area, with one in the tourist hotspot of Cancun, one in Playa del Carmen, two in Tulum and another two in the hotel area. One rapid PCR testing centre has opened in the capital Mexico City while the other five are in the Santo Domingo district.
DAM Health is led by Professor Frank Joseph who said: “We’re really proud to be opening more clinics and taking our operations from Liverpool to Mexico. Mexico is a country who will massively benefit from our presence.
“People looking to travel to popular destinations such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen can be safe in the knowledge that a trusted and reputable company will be on hand to provide PCR tests and fit to fly certificates very quickly in order to get them home safely again.
“Of course, tackling COVID-19 is a global effort and we are working hard to keep the virus under control in the UK, but it really is vital we support other nations too.
“I am proud that DAM Health can support in this way while our charitable work with the Hope Foundation in India – in which we provided vital air-conditioning equipment plus Covid-safe protective kits including masks and sanitisers while also donating large sums to help fund ventilators in hospitals in the region – will continue.
“We’re also partnering with charitable initiatives back home too – like with Football For Change which is helping to get deprived young people back into education or employment.”
