What is the PCR test for? 

To detect the whether you have SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in your nose or throat.  


Do you offer TEST TO RELEASE? 

Yes, please see here   


Is PCR and RT-PCR the same? 

Broadly speaking yes, it is the method to test the samples. Our method of testing is RT-PCR which is the current standard for travelling. It is a further description of the sampling technique. We have not heard of anyone challenging the PCR method types.  


Why would I do the PCR test? 

  • To know if your symptoms are being caused by a coronavirus infection. 
  • To know if you have coronavirus in your nose and throat and whether you have symptoms (or not) from being in contact with an infected person 
  • To know if you are infectious to others 

Do I need a test to travel abroad? 

We advise you do your own research in-line with the guidelines you are travelling to. You can find lots of information on the UK’s government website.

How quickly do I get my Standard PCR results? 

If you have a test on DAY1, your swab will be received in the Lab DAY2, your results will be sent to you on DAY3 before midday (12pm).  


Do you have an Express service? 

Yes, if you need to travel and need a test quickly, we have an express service. You need to be tested and your swab will be same-day couriered to the Lab, for results delivered the next day before midday (12pm). You can select this when booking your test.  


What is the Emergency PCR service? 

We have very limited availability for the Emergency PCR Service. You will receive your results in most cases by 3am the next day, regardless of the time slot you were tested the previous day.  


Do you analyse PCR tests 7 days per week? 

The laboratory test swabs 7 days per week however our clinic is only open 6 days per week for swabbing. 


What if I test positive? 

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE
• You must immediately self-isolate to prevent spreading the virus to others
• You should then Contact the NHS on 111 who will advise you on the next steps to take. 


What type of test is the PCR test? 

It is a test that detects the RNA of coronavirus particles. This is why it is so sensitive and accurate. It does not rely on the body’s response to having been exposed to the virus previously, which can be variable. It tests for the presence of the coronavirus itself. 


Is the PCR test accurate? 

If there is any coronavirus on your swab it will definitely find it. However if it does not find coronavirus on your swab it does not necessarily mean you don’t have it. There is a small chance that the virus may be not be picked up by the swab depending on swabbing technique. Therefore with the guidance of our in-clinic medically trained staff we help ensure an effective self-swab is taken.  


What is "return to work" testing? 

There are some healthcare professionals and businesses who are taking a calculated risk that it is perhaps safe to return to work in some circumstances if people have both a PCR test which detects no virus, and a positive antibody test confirming the presence of antibodies - indicating that an individual is not carrying the virus and has been infected and recovered.
