Doctorcall provides Coronavirus Covid-19 testing. Please book an appointment in one of our clinics or request a home visit within our areas of cover.
We offer Covid-19 Coronavirus testing using both the Abbott and Roche platforms.
All results are usually available within 48-hours, but can be up to 72-hours.
We can provide Covid testing for business travellers who are due to fly.
Additionally, we can provide home sampling kits for Covid-19 infection. These are tested at an accredited lab which is the largest in the UK.
Before booking or buying online, please read the Important Information section below, in particular the section regarding 'Turnaround.'
At the current time, due to levels of demand, tests are not available for holiday/lesiure travel, but they are available for business travel, school and university.
We offer clinic appointments for antibody and antigen testing in both London and Manchester.
In London, one of our doctors can visit you in your home to test for antibodies or to take a swab for the virus itself.
In London, we can arrange for a doctor to visit you at home, or a place that suits you, to carry out Covid-19 tests. The doctor can usually be with you in around 90 minutes.
To arrange for a doctors visit for Covid-19 testing, please call us on 0344 257 0345. Please note we can provide both antibody testing and viral testing at home, the latter will show if you do or don't currently have the virus.
We can see patients that are symptomatic or in at-risk groups.
You will pay for the doctor call-out fee plus £157 for a PCR swab test or £87 for an antibody test. For the call-out fee, please get a price in your area by clicking Book Online below.

This is the "do I currently have the virus?" test.
For those with suspected Covid-19 symptoms, take your own swab and return it in the prepaid packet which fits in a normal letter box. It is tested in the largest accredited lab in the UK.
Your result is available within 2 to 3 days (compared with 10 days for other tests) and is delivered to you by SMS text.
We are working hard to keep all our customers and patients safe during this time.
TURNAROUND: How long does it take to get the results?
Turnaround time: Test results are usually available within 48-hours but can be up to 72 hours. Although the aim is for results to be received in this time frame, Doctorcall cannot guarantee this as we use a third party accredited laboratory. At times of high demand, results may take longer. We cannot be held responsible for cancelled flights and associated costs.
Where can I have the test?
We have clinics in Manchester and London. We also have a Visiting Doctor Service in London.
Do I get a certificate?
We provide a copy of the laboratory results and a physician-signed certificate on letterheaded paper stating the name of the test, the accredited laboratory and the result. You will need to bring photographic ID to show at your appointment.
Certificates are not available for home sampling kits.
Can I get my results over the weekend?
Yes we have staff working from 8am-4pm on the weekend who will be able to provide results and certificates on request. Routine ones will be automatically sent out on the Monday.
Can I come for a test if I have been asked to quarantine?
No, unfortunately you must not leave home to attend a clinic if you have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine. You should also not attend a clinic if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been in contact with anyone who has. However if you live in the London area you can have a doctor to carry out the test at home.
How can I book?
Can children have a PCR swab test?
Yes, we can test children, although younger children may find the test a little distressing.
