COVID-19 Test – Swabs
We are offering a PCR swab test which detects the active presence of the virus i.e. shows that you currently have COVID-19. These are the tests currently used by the NHS and approved by Public Health England and are fully compliant with government guidelines.
Patients without symptoms:
- We can now offer PCR tests in our Chelsea clinic only, as well as home tests.
- Tests at Chelsea are only available to patients who are not displaying symptoms of COVID-19 e.g. if you need a PCR swab test for pre-travel screening.
- If you require a doctor to provide a COVID-19 Fit to Fly Certificate to confirm the results of your PCR swab test, we can provide that for you for no additional cost. You can check the box on the home test order form or request this at the Chelsea clinic when you have your swab.
Patient with symptoms:
- If you are experiencing a temperature over 37.8 degrees, a new continuous cough or changes to sense of smell or you are self-isolating, please only book a home test.
- You will be eligible to be tested via the NHS if you are currently symptomatic.
Home tests are sent to your address and swabs are analysed in a laboratory with results within 3 working days from receipt of the sample by the lab. To find out more click here.
Can I get a PCR swab test in any of your clinics?
We are currently only offering in-clinic COVID-19 tests in our Chelsea clinic for anyone not currently showing symptoms.
If you are showing symptoms please only book a home COVID test – private. The home test kits are sent to your chosen address with simple instructions on how to take the test. You will then need to post the test back to our lab for analysis. You will receive an email with your test results once they are available and advice from one of our doctors if your test is positive.
Please do not come into our Chelsea clinic if you are currently showing any COVID-19 symptoms.
