How does this work?

PCR swab test for COVID at the Clinic

You are welcome to come to the clinic for testing if you are asymptomatic and need the test for travel purpose or to exclude an active infection while asymptomatic. Please do not attend the clinic for 14 days after being symptomatic. After self-isolating, it is unlikely at this stage that your result will be positive so you can opt for a laboratory or instant antibody test instead.

We have two testing options:

  • Next day by 8 pm result: £99
  • Same day by 10 pm result: £139 (please note you must test by 10 am)

Tell me more about the test

The test is done on a combined throat-nose swab which can tell you if you have an active COVID infection currently. It cannot tell you if you were previously infected. If you want to know if you were previously infected with COVID19, you can opt for an antibody test with us.

We are not currently seeing patients who have cold or flu symptoms or have had contact with anyone with confirmed coronavirus in person. We are also not seeing patients in person who have recently returned from travel within the last 14 days due to the higher risk of asymptomatic transmission. We are offering telephone and video consultations and testing for coronavirus / COVID-19 at home.
