COVID-19 Test – Antibody
The COVID-19 antibody test looks for antibodies in your blood. This tests measures whether you have had the virus in the past. We are able to provide the Public Health England approved Abbott coronavirus antibody test, that has 99% accurate sensitivity and specificity to SARS-CoV-2. The test will be done via a blood sample taken by a doctor or Healthcare Assistant and results will be sent to our partner laboratory. To find out more click here.
COVID-19 Test (Home Test) – Swabs
We are offering a PCR swab test which detects 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. Tests kits are sent to your home and swabs are analysed in a laboratory with results within 3-5 working days from receipt of the sample by the lab. To find out more click here.
Please note COVID-19 Fit to Fly Certificate is currently unavailable due to extremely high demands on testing across the UK.
Can I get a PCR swab test in any of your clinics?
No. We are currently only offering COVID-19 home tests. The 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 the clinic if you want a swab test.
Ordering your Private Coronavirus Test
We’ve wanted to offer a test to help stem the spread of COVID-19 for some weeks. We are delighted to now be in a position to do this. Our testing is NOT taking vital resources away from the NHS and is fully in line with PHE’s approach. Our ongoing laboratory partner has confirmed that they can guarantee a continuous supply of tests for our patients, and will only offer testing we can confidently fulfil.
We’re aware that some people don’t meet the criteria for testing on the NHS and/or would like to take the strain off the NHS and pay for a private coronavirus test. We hope that by offering more access to tests we will slow the spread of the virus and help people return to health and get back to their everyday lives more quickly.
Our Coronavirus tests are suitable for you if you are displaying any of the symptoms of COVID-19, believe you have been in contact with someone else who may have COVID-19 or if you think you have had coronavirus.
If you’d like to speak to one of our doctors, you can book a same day video appointment.
