TURNAROUND: How long does it take to get the results?
For samples tested in the lab, test results and certificates are provided within 48 hours when you see one of our team in clinic or on a home visit.
For the instant tests, results should be available in about 15-minutes.
We do not provide advice on travel rules or country-specific requirements as these can change frequently based on the latest government advice. Please check with your airline or travel agent before booking an appointment. Similarly, if a country requires a test within a certain timeframe, you should check this before contacting us as we cannot provide this information.
In the case of postal tests, the result is available within 48 hours of your sample arriving at the lab. We despatch your kit by the next working day using a next-day tracked courier service and you are given tracking details. We provide a reply-paid Royal Mail first class envelope or you can deliver or courier you sample to the lab which is in central London. You should allow one to two working days to receive your kit, one to two days if you post it back and two days for the lab to process the sample. We can only provide certificates where we have seen you to verify your identity but we still provide a laboratory result in all cases.
It is the nature of medical tests that a small number are affected by technical issues and we cannot be held responsible in the event of any delays or requirements to re-test. Every effort is made to minimise inconvenience to you and only a very small minority of tests are affected.
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.
Can children have a PCR swab test?
Yes, we can test children, although younger children may find the test a little distressing.
How is the Covid-19 PCR swab test carried out?
The test involves a member of the staff testing team taking a swab from the back of the throat before using the same swab to take a sample from both nostrils (at a depth of no more than 2.5cm). The test is quick and simple although some people may find it slightly uncomfortable.
