Yes - we do offer this and you can purchase this test here.
If you have any of the following symptoms you should not purchase your test through us;
- A high temperature?
- A new continuous cough? (a new continuous cough is coughing a lot more for an hour, 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours, or a worsening of a chronic cough)
- A loss/change to your sense of smell?
Why can't I buy a PCR test from Medichecks if I am symptomatic?
If you currently have symptoms then we strongly advise that you do not buy a private test and instead book a free test through the NHS here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/
This ensures that if you test positive then you will be properly advised on what to do next if your symptoms worsen, and importantly, you will be part of the track and trace system and your recent contacts will be followed up to ensure they self-isolate.
Can I use this test to check I am safe to travel?
This test will confirm whether or not you have a current COVID-19 infection, but we cannot guarantee you will receive your results before your date of departure – particularly if you need to take the test within a few days of travel. We do not provide certificates indicating fitness to travel with this test.
We do provide your results as a downloadable PDF, and please check that this will be suitable for the purposes you are having the test.
How much does this test cost?
The test is £139.00.
What is the turn around time on this test?
This test has a 2 working day turn around time - from receipt of your sample at the lab.
