Can I order a test for someone else? (Yes, but it is easier if they do it themselves 🙂)
We know that sometimes you may want to buy a test for someone else. This is possible as long as you follow some simple steps to ensure that the test kit that we send out is in their name, not yours. If the test kit is not in their name, then the lab may not be able to process the sample, or we might not be able to release the results to the right person.
Before you start – make sure the person you’re buying for is 18 or over – our service isn’t available for children.
Step 1. Make sure that the test you want to buy for someone else is not in a basket containing a test for you.
Step 2. Once you have added the test to the basket, proceed through the checkout until we ask you to sign in or create an account. If you are already signed in, log out and then create an account for the person you are buying a kit for. If they already have an account and you have been given permission to access their login details, you will need to sign in as them.
Step 3. To create an account for someone else, you will need their full name, date of birth, delivery address, phone number and their personal email address. We will also ask you to create a password.
Step 4. Proceed to payment. Once you have completed the purchase, we will build the test kit in the name of the person you have bought the test for.
Remember to share the login details with the person you have bought a test kit for, as we will email them to log in to their account to complete their medical history. All correspondence will now be direct with the individual who is taking the test.
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. We can then assign the test to them.
Alternatively you can purchase a gift card to give to friends and family to use online here.
