Swab testing for COVID-19 via PCR is the most accurate available test for an active coronavirus infection and is now a requirement for travel, with some destinations also requiring a fit to fly certificate. We can help with all of your COVID-19 testing needs and no additional fee is charged for certificates and fit to fly letters.
How is the test conducted?
A simple swab is taken from your throat and nose by our nurse or healthcare assistant.
Will the test take place at the clinic?
The COVID-19 swab test is taken at the clinic for patients testing for travel or while asymptomatic. If you are symptomatic and unable to obtain an NHS test, please contact us to arrange a homekit to be sent to your home. We can also organise a GP telephone consultation for you if required.
