Covid Tests

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or need to prove to your work or country of entry that you don’t have coronavirus, our quick and easy PCR Swab Test can help.

If yours proves negative, we can supply you with a fully authorised Fit To Fly certificate (needed by airlines) or Test To Release certificate (needed to release you up to five days early from your quarantine).

Highly Accurate

Our test is the exact same one used by the NHS. It is Government approved and UKAS registered (you should ensure wherever you get your test they can offer the same assurances).

The test is 100% sensitive and 97.5% accurate (unlike some of the rapid test kits available).

If you wish to fly or be released from your quarantine early, only this level test with these accreditations will be accepted.

How it’s taken

Our highly trained medical team will take a swab from the back of your mouth and/or inside your nose. They will then speed your sample to one of two testing laboratories (depending how quickly you need your result).

Your result will be emailed the same day, the next day or within two days – depending on the service you booked with us. If you requested a Fit to Fly or Test to Release certificate, that will be emailed at the same time, provided your test proves negative and you don’t have coronavirus.

What is an Antibody test?

When you are fighting an infection, your immune system produces antibodies which remain in your blood after your recovery. If you had COVID-19, even if you had no symptoms, antibodies are likely to be found in your blood. This test draws a sample of your blood which is then analysed to see if the COVID-19 antibodies – known as SARS-CoV-2 – are present.

The antibody test is 100% sensitive, 99% specific and over 90% accurate.

If you believe you have had COVID-19 (at least 10 days ago), we recommend the IgG test which will pick up antibodies that have formed.

If you believe you may have COVID-19 now or within the last week, we recommend the IgM test which will pick up new antibodies that have just formed or are currently forming.
