Where can I get a test?

You can book a PCR test online for any of our clinics in London, Watford, Manchester and Newcastle. At each clinic we have healthcare professionals who administer your tests.

What does the test do and how accurate is it?

A PCR test is a nucleic acid test that looks for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. It will confirm if you currently have the virus. It will not confirm whether you have had it and have developed an immune response - there are other tests available for that (see our antibody test). It is the gold standard of testing and is 99.9% accurate.

How quickly can I get results back?

As fast as 23:59 the same day you take your PCR test if you choose a Same Day turnaround time. We also offer results by 18:00 the next day after your test and 2 days after your test by 18:00. All test samples are analysed 7 days a week and you’ll get your results as soon as they’re released.

How do I receive my results and what information is shown on the certificate?

Your test results will be sent to you securely by text and email including a PDF you can download. Your certificate will show your full name, date of birth, passport number, date and time of test, and issue date. It will also be signed by our Medical Director, Dr. Jeremy Harris GMC: 3076541.

What are the possible results of my PCR test?

Negative: You do not have any evidence of an active COVID-19 infection.

Positive: The virus that causes COVID-19 has been detected on your swab. You will need to self-isolate for 10 days in accordance with government guidance.

Unclear: On rare occasions, it might not be possible to say if you had the virus when your test was done. In the event of this happening, you’ll need to come in again for a retest. We offer all retests free of charge.

How is the test taken?

A throat and nose swab sample is taken by one of our healthcare professionals at one of our clinics in London, Watford, Manchester and Newcastle.

Does a PCR test include a Fit to Fly Certificate?

A PCR test does not include a Fit to Fly Certificate. You’ll need to book a PCR Fit to Fly test instead. Fit to Fly Certificates are offered free of charge.

Is a PCR test safe for children?

Yes, children of any age can take a PCR test but we require children under the age of 18 to have parental consent.

Are you recognised by the UK Government and are you accredited?

We’re a leading UK government recognised provider of all private COVID-19 tests. Our tests are analysed at UKAS accredited labs that comply to ISO15189 and ISO17025 standards.

Is your PCR test accepted worldwide?

Yes, it’s accepted by all international destinations. Our real time PCR (RT-PCR) method is fully certified and accredited by Public Health England. This test is trusted by airlines and embassies.
