About the COVID test

Many people have no symptoms but are required to undertake a test to make sure they do not currently have the Coronavirus. This may be for work or travel purposes or just to put your own mind at rest. In this instance you will require a PCR test. You may also need a “fit to fly” certificate. Following confirmation that you are virus free that can be arranged for you. A PCR test is for early detection of COVID-19. It is accurate from the earliest pre-symptomatic stages of infection. It does not show whether you have had the virus previously.

How do we do the test?

On arrival at one of our test centres or at the venue that we are facilitating the test, a COVID technician will meet you wearing PPE to protect you both. You will have your temperature taken, via a contactless scanning device. Next you will be asked questions about any symptoms you may currently have and your contact details. For the test you will be asked to sit down and a swab of first your throat, then both nostrils will be taken. The swab looks like a long cotton bud. The test is not painful, but some people feel that the throat swab makes them gag a little. It is over and done with very quickly. We then send the swabs for testing to our specialist laboratories. As soon as the results are ready you will be able to view them on line or via an email.

How much does the test cost?

This will depend on where you are having the test. For example if you are attending one of our centres or if we are coming out to you. We will give you a quote with a full breakdown of the costs. Once you accept the quote we will make the arrangements with you.
