The person who is providing a sample for testing must be the account holder for that test or must have activated the kit and created an account in respect of that test.
You cannot order a test for someone else on your account. All the details we ask you to provide when you set up your account are necessary for the laboratory to perform the right test, and for us to make sure that we send results back to the right person. For accuracy, privacy and security, all these details need to match.
If you have inadvertently bought a test for someone else on your account don't worry. Just let us know so that we can help them set up their own Medichecks account and move the test over.
We do have certain products that can be purchased and then require activating by the person who is going to take the test. Activation is the process by which a user registers their personal details in an account and links it to a test using an activation code on the kit – this provides the laboratory with the correct details of the person whose sample is being tested. Currently, this is only available on our Coronavirus Antibody Blood Test and Coronavirus PCR Swab Test.
If you are wanting to purchase a test for someone else you can purchase a gift card to give to friends and family to use online here.
