What does the COVID-19 PCR test involve?

The COVID-19 PCR test requires a throat swab sample to be collected by the client (self-administered) inside the clinic and sent back to our UKAS registered laboratory for testing.

PCR & throat swabs are being used to rule out COVID-19 infection before travel or resuming other activities.

Usually, less than 48 hours from the swab collection.

Should I come to the clinic to do the COVID-19 PCR test?

Yes, you would need to book an online slot and come to the clinic in person for 5 minutes to do the swab for yourself (self-administered). The sample is then sent to the lab for analysis and printing out the results.

What should I do if my COVID-19 PCR throat swab test is negative?

A negative PCR test means that you were not infected with COVID-19 when you took the test. If you have no symptoms, you can continue as normal. However, if you have symptoms, follow NHS guidance.

Many airlines and countries will allow you to travel if you have a negative PCR test result. Some countries and airlines require an extra Fit-to-Fly certificate including your passport details. We provide the Fit-to-Fly certificate at an additional cost of £50.

Can I amend the date or cancel my test booking?

Yes, you can mend the date for your test booking online or cancel for a full refund until the date of your test. In case of no show or the swab test was performed, full payment shall be deducted.

Is this test suitable for the test to release scheme?

We offer PCR tests for the purpose of travelling abroad and for the general public only. Unfortunately, we don’t offer PCR tests for the “test to release” scheme.
