Coronavirus (COVID-19) FAQs

 

blank
Who Can Be Tested with the COVID-19 Antibody Test?

If you believe you have had symptoms of coronavirus, the most recognisable being a high temperature, a continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, an antibody test will confirm whether the illness was in fact due to COVID-19.

Recent studies also suggest that many people only experience mild or even no symptoms at all and so an antibody test would similarly be suitable in this situation if you simply want to know whether you’ve had coronavirus or not.

You can have the test if you are more than 21 days post symptoms. This test will be invalid if done earlier than this.

The test detects whether you have developed antibodies as a result of coronavirus infection, a typical response by your body’s immune system in order to fight infection. There is currently no strong evidence yet to suggest that the presence of antibodies confers long-lasting immunity which would prevent you from getting the virus again, however there’s clear value in knowing depending on your own circumstances, if you’re at risk yourself or to other vulnerable family, friends or colleagues

Who Can Be Tested with the COVID-19 Swab Test?

This test will confirm if you currently have coronavirus. You can have this test if you are currently symptomatic or 5 days after initial exposure. Typical symptoms include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Testing will be available for patients of all ages.

When can I expect my results and when will I be informed?

Our Laboratory normally processes and returns results within 24-48 hours for the antibody blood tests and 2-3 working days for swabs and from receiving the test at the laboratory. This is not a guarantee, as NHS samples may need to be prioritised at certain times.

You will be emailed by one of the MyHealthcare team as soon as your result is available. All positive results are reviewed by one of our GPs.

Why should I come into clinic for a test instead of ordering the At-Home test kit?

We can often book patients in on the same day for an antibody test with one of our healthcare professionals at our clinics with the sample urgently sent by courier to the lab.

This is the quickest way to get results back and is also the most accurate way to complete the test.

The Antibody At-Home test requires an accurate technique to obtain a sufficient quantity of blood. We recommend In-Clinic testing by one of our professionals if you do not feel confident to administer the test at home.

Understanding a Positive Result for Antibodies
A positive result indicates the presence of ‘anti-SARS-COV-2’ IgG antibodies which are produced following infection. This means you have had coronavirus (COVID-19) in the past.
 
This does not indicate immunity so it is important to continue following the current Public Health and Government advice on social distancing and hygiene measures.

Understanding a Negative Result for Antibodies
A negative result means no ‘anti-SARS-COV-2’ antibodies were detected i.e. there is no evidence of past infection.
 
A small number of people who receive a negative result may be surprised by this. This negative result could be for a variety of reasons:

 

  • Every person produces a different antibody response to an infection: some will develop a strong response which is detectable, whilst others only develop a weak antibody response to the same infection which may not be detectable on testing.
  • Antibody levels decrease over time in all patients. Unfortunately there is currently no clear research detailing this time period.
  • There are a multitude of other highly prevalent viruses in circulation that cause the same symptoms as COVID-19, such as rhinoviruses or influenza. Therefore, you may have had a different virus causing your symptoms rather than suffering from coronavirus.
  • There is some new research indicating that some people could be protected by a different part of the immune system (called T-Cells) although this isn’t something that is available for testing.

How can I trust the test and how accurate is it?

Our partner laboratory is an established UKAS-accredited laboratory that provides private testing to a number of London and UK clinics and hospitals.

The manufacturer of the Antibody test (Abbott Laboratories) reports that an independent clinical performance evaluation of the test performed in the United Kingdom confirmed the following accuracy levels:

• Specificity (ability to identify negative cases) of 100%.

• Sensitivity (ability to identify positive cases) of 98%.

The test is CE Marked for Europe and has FDA EUA approval.

The test we are using is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test detecting IgG antibodies only, conducted by a UKAS accredited lab.

Clinic Safety

To minimise the risk to our patients and staff, we will only allow one patient onto the premises at any one time, therefore please attend your appointment alone.

The premises will also be decontaminated between appointments, so we also ask that you attend your appointment on time to allow for decontamination.

NHS Workers

We will also be able to offer a discount to NHS workers. Please email us at [email protected] to enquire about this.
