Covid-19 Testing FAQs

Which COVID-19 Test do I require?

We offer multiple testing options depending on your needs:

  • PCR Test – Testing for active infection. Available in our dedicated testing centres or self-testing at home.
  • Fit to Fly Test – Proof of no infection with an accompanying travel certificate. Available in our dedicated testing centres and clinics.
  • Rapid Antigen Test – Testing for active infection. Results within in 4 hours. Available in our dedicated testing centres only.
  • Antibody ‘Abbott’ Test – Blood testing for the presence of antibodies for past infection. Available in clinic.
Should I choose the COVID-19 PCR swab test?

This test will confirm if you currently have coronavirus.

This test is the gold standard and the same test is available to patients who are symptomatic or have been exposed to the virus. The test will be performed by taking a swab sample from the throat and nose which is then sent to our partner laboratories. This is the gold standard tests and same test as is available via the NHS testing system.

Should I choose the COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test?

This test will confirm if you currently have coronavirus with results available within 4 hours.

This test can also be used to prove negative infection prior to travel to France and Italy.

Rapid Antigen (Lateral flow) testing is available for patients who are symptomatic or been exposed to the virus. The test will be performed by taking a swab sample from the throat and nose.

We use the leading Roche Rapid Antigen tests with a 98% overall accuracy (Sensitivity 97%, Specificity 100%).

Should I choose the COVID-19 Fit-to-Fly test?

This test will confirm you do not have coronavirus and therefore are able to travel abroad.

Many countries require a fit to fly certificate showing that you have tested negative for coronavirus with a PCR test, typically within 48-96hrs of your flight.

We offer Fit-to-Fly tests with Same Day, Next Day & 48 hour turnaround. This is a throat and nasal swab test sent to an external laboratory.

If travelling to Italy you can also choose instead to have a Rapid Antigen test with results available within 4 hours.

Are Travel Certificates included in the cost of my test?

Yes. Our prices include travel certificates if required.

Should I choose the COVID-19 Test-to-Release?

If you have returned to the UK from a country that is not on the UK travel corridor list you can take this test on day 5 after your return. This is a throat and nasal swab test sent to an external laboratory.

If you receive a negative result this allows you to be ‘released’ from quarantine early as per UK government guidance.

Should I choose the COVID-19 Antibody ‘Abbott’ test?

This blood test will confirm if you have had coronavirus in the past.

If you believe you have had symptoms of coronavirus or were previously exposed to someone with coronavirus, you can have an antibody blood test. The test detects whether you have developed antibodies as a result of coronavirus infection and is performed if you are more than 21 days post symptoms.

There is currently no confirmed evidence to suggest that the presence of antibodies provides immunity to the virus so it is important to continue to practice social distancing and hygiene measures.

How do the Home Test Kits work?

Once booked, you will receive a PCR testing kit in the post sent by Royal Mail signed delivery. The kit will include everything you need and step by step instructions on how to test yourself using the swabs provided. The swabs should be sealed in the containers provided and posted back to the laboratory for testing.

We advise patients to send this by private courier or next day signed delivery to ensure rapid turnaround.

How can I trust the accuracy of these COVID-19 tests and your service?

All our tests have been sourced from multinational pharmaceutical companies including Roche AG and Abbott Laboratories, Inc.
Our partner laboratories are UKAS accredited and currently provide large scale testing to the UK government, NHS and other high-demand institutions such as hospitals and airports.

Our clinics are regulated by the Care Quality Commission ensuring we meet all requirements of a medical provider.
