Do you need a certificate before travel to verify your current Covid status? Or perhaps you are filling in a Visa application form and you need a Covid swab test result and certificate? We offer Covid-19 swab testing to determine whether you have the disease NOW by looking for the virus collected on a swab. This test is most sensitive whilst you are displaying covid symptoms. Testing involves taking a throat and nose swab, preferably self administered for your comfort and to our specification or by one of our Doctors or Health Care Assistants. If you are displaying Covid symptoms then this MUST be a self administered test. We send all of our tests to our laboratory and they are analysed using a laboratory based approved test.
In order to provide a certificate for travel/visa purposes you must provide valid ID at the time of test for each certificate.
Please note that this is not an instant test.
We will email you the results which are normally back with us inside 48 hours. The cost of the test is £160.
To be absolutely clear, if you wish to have testing in surgery then you must be asymptomatic.
