1. You agree that by using the Covid-19 testing services provided by MyHealthcare Clinic Ltd, you agree to and accept these Terms and Conditions of Use. These Conditions of Use will prevail over any other terms and conditions provided to you in relation to the test.

2.TESTS & SAMPLNG METHODS

2.1 The testing services which are available for Rapid test, Antibody Test, PCR, PCR Fit to Fly and Test to Release include:

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Swab Test
Antigen Swab Test
Antibody Blood Test

2.2 We offer these tests as a possible way of satisfying the differing requirements of various countries for negative Covid-19 test results prior to travelling to their territories. The tests can also potentially be used to shorten self-isolation periods by the UK government as part of the test to release strategy. However, please note you are solely responsible for determining that the test you are taking is suitable for your particular requirements, including whether any particular test satisfies the standards you are seeking to meet (whether for entry into any particular international destination, or shortening quarantine in the UK).

3. RESULTS

3.1 We guarantee that we will provide results within the following timescales from when you take the test.

  • Same day PCR test – 12 hours
  • Next Day PCR test- 24 hours
  • 48 hours PCR test - 48 hours
  • Rapid Antigen Test – 2-4 hours
  • Antibody Blood test – 48 hours

3.2 Please note that we use external laboratories for all PCR & Fit-to-fly tests and have no control over their processing times once we have couriered your sample. Laboratories may need to sometimes repeat tests or prioritise other samples which could impact upon the time you receive your test.

3.3 MyHealthcare Clinic is unable to accept liability or provide any compensation for costs you may incur due to delayed results.

4. BOOKING PROCESS

4.2 You are required to register your details, complete any required documentation and pay prior to attending. No changes can be made within clinics and testing centres.

4.3 For those below the age of 16, the child’s legal guardian must register patient details, book the appointment, provide written consent and attend the appointment alongside the child.

  • You have NOT had a positive test for Covid-19 or developed any of the symptoms of Covid-19 within 10 days prior to your appointment.

  • Your household members or other people you have been in contact with have NOT had a positive Covid-19 test or developed the symptoms above in the 14 days prior to your appointment.

  • You do not abide by the rules and policies of the clinic

6. SUMMARY OF RESULTS

6.1 Testing is a biological process involving significant complexity and variability, and consequently no testing regime for Covid-19 is 100% accurate in all cases.

6.2 A negative result does not guarantee that the test subject is free of the Covid-19 virus, nor does a positive result guarantee that the test subject has active, infectious Covid-19.

6.3 If your test results come back as inconclusive, you may need to be retested, in which case you will be charged 50% of the test price. All testing is conducted on this basis.

6.4 Test results and any comments alongside results are for information only. They are not a clinical diagnosis. They are not a replacement for a full and proper medical investigation and/or a doctor’s advice. Comments are based solely on the results in relation to what are considered normal ranges in the general population.

6.5 If you have any concerns at all regarding any aspect of your health or your test results, you should discuss them directly with your GP or a doctor.

6.6 Based on the results of your test(s) we may advise that you purchase a follow-up test or that you see your GP for further investigation or both. You agree that you are solely responsible for acting on such guidance; we accept no liability if you choose not to do so.

7. REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

7.1 We or our partner laboratories may be legally required to share certain information with Public Health England, or other governmental organisations, in relation to your test, including: personal information (e.g. name and date of birth); the result, whether negative or positive; and confirmation that the sample is one that the laboratory has tested for us.

7.2 All positive PCR and Antigen test results are submitted to Public Health England as part of the National reporting procedures.

7.3 The above information may be used as part of any test and trace service being operated by the government in your jurisdiction.
