HOW DOES IT WORK
We will ship you our easy to use home sample collection kit right away. When you receive it please open the package and read the instructions carefully.
We recommend the test to be carried out by someone with experience in swabbing, however in the scenario where this is not possible please follow the instruction guidelines.
First carefully read the introduction letter and instructions, and register your kit. Twist open the swab and remove it without touching the soft tip. While standing in front of a mirror, insert the swab into the back of your throat and firmly swab your tonsils and either side of the throat, avoiding your tongue. Then put the swab into one nostril and twirl for a few seconds. Put the swab back into the tube it came in a press it closed. Place the closed swab, along with your completed test request form into the prepaid envelope provided, seal and post as soon as possible from any royal mail postal point.
Your results will be ready within 24-48 hours after arriving at our laboratory. We will share your results with you via a portal which we will email to you as soon as they are available. The result will be in a form of a PDF, that is signed by a doctor and is eligable to be used as a Fit To Fly Certificate.
The advice as to what to do if you either infected or not is continually being updated by the NHS here.
If you do return a positive result your doctor is legally bound to let Public Health England know as it is notifiable disease.
WHY PCR TEST
A PCR test looks for the presence of the RNA of the virus itself. This means that it will pick up the presence of the actual virus in the nose and throat. It is 100% accurate and will be able to confirm whether anyone with symptoms has the virus at the time of testing.
If you require an Antibody test, you will be required to have your blood sample taken at our clinic. Find out more here.
