Coronavirus / COVID-19 PCR swab testing conducted in-clinic for travel, work or ending quarantine with next day result

Swab testing for COVID 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. Our service is government-approved.

From 15th February 2021, government guidelines have changed regarding the test to release, quarantine and testing and what you need to do and organise before travel. Read our guide here. Full government guidance is here.

PCR swab tests for travel

PCR swab test for coronavirus is currently the required test to exclude an active infection if you plan to travel. Please check with the authorities in the country you are travelling to for more information. We can help with the test and the signing and stamping of any certification for no additional fee. We are a preferred provider for several airlines.

A fit-to-fly certificate will be issued in addition to your laboratory report unless you let us know you do not want this sent to you. If you are travelling, you are wholly responsible for the timing of your test based on your destination’s requirements. The clinic takes no responsibility for the chosen timing of your test.

We have helped hundreds of people to travel since early June successfully. There are no additional fees for processing government certificates, and our results come to you as an official laboratory PDF the next day before 8 pm. We also offer a premium service with results on the same day for £139 (you must test before 10 am).

Please note that we do not take responsibility for the timing of your test – please check with your airline or destination government website and book accordingly. We are here to conduct your test safely and issue your results on time – we cannot advise you on the regulations for your particular destination. Our nurses and healthcare assistants cannot advise you if you have incorrectly booked at the time of your test.

  • Next day COVID PCR swab test: £99, including certificate and fit-to-fly letter where required
  • Same-day COVID PCR swab test: £139, including certificate and fit-to-fly letter where required. Result by 10 pm. Testing by 10.30 am mandatory.

Please note: Public Health England requires every clinic conducting testing for COVID to provide patient names, dates of birth and addresses for every person being tested, regardless of the outcome of the test. By attending the clinic, you are consenting to us providing this information to Public Health England.


What does the test check for?

The test is a PCR test meaning it can tell you if you have an active coronavirus infection. It cannot tell you if you have had it in the past.

How is the COVID test conducted?

A simple swab is taken from your throat and nose by our nurse or healthcare assistant in our private London clinic.

Can I come to the clinic for this?

For the safety of all patients, we are not currently seeing patients who have cold or flu symptoms or have had contact with anyone with confirmed coronavirus in person at the clinics. We are offering telephone and video consultations and testing for coronavirus / COVID at home. After your symptoms pass, you can come to the clinic after 14 days. If you are asymptomatic, we are happy to see you as usual in person.

Will the test take place at the clinic?

The COVID 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 home kit to be sent to your home. We can also organise a GP telephone consultation for you if required.

What should I do / avoid before my test?

If you are having a COVID-19 PCR swab, you are advised not to use nasal hay-fever sprays, and any other solution into the nose for 24 hours before the test as this may invalidate the result. Please also avoid eating salty meals or drinking alcohol for 2 hours prior to the test.

What if I need to speak to a doctor?

You can opt to speak to a doctor for a consultation after your result is back. Our doctors are available in person, on the phone or video consultation.

When will I get my COVID PCR test result & how much does it cost?

Our clinic guarantees your result by 8 pm the next day. This service costs £175. We also have a premium service with a result by 8 am the next day for £245.

How do I book a COVID test?

Please call the clinic and our team will help you from there.

How do I pay?

You will pay after your appointment.
