About this test

This Covid-19 PCR swab test is carried out in a booked appointment at our clinic (4 Basinghall St, EC2V 5BQ) by our nursing team. The test involves taking a swab sample from the back of the throat and both nostrils. Appointments are 10 minutes long and the test takes about 2 to 3 minutes.

The test is fully approved by Public Health England and is analysed in the largest private laboratory in London. The sample is sent to a UKAS accredited laboratory. Results are guaranteed within 72 hours, and our current turnaround time is 24-48 hours (this includes weekends).

Positive results will be shared with Public Health England to contribute to national data as well as Test & Trace.

Who should have this test

The in-clinic Covid-19 PCR test is for over 18s who DO NOT have symptoms to check that they are currently free of Covid-19. 

You may wish to have this test if:

  • You are visiting an elderly or vulnerable individual to minimise their risk of exposure to Covid-19 
  • Your workplace requires you to have a negative Covid-19 test
  • You do not have symptoms but would like to have a Covid-19 check

You should NOT have this test in our clinic if you have any fever, new continuous cough or loss of smell/taste in the past 14 days. If this is the case, please visit GOV.UK. Additionally you can order our home self-swab kit here.

We can only do this test in our clinic for patients over 18 years old. To order a home testing kit for patients aged 7 to 18, please CLICK HERE.

Please book an individual appointment slot for each person that requires a test. 

How do I pay?2020-12-23T17:39:33+00:00

All payments for Covid tests need to be made by credit/debit card when you attend the clinic for your appointment. We are unable to take cash payments during the Covid pandemic. 

Our team may call you ahead of your appointment to complete a Covid-19 risk questionnaire and to take payment details over the phone. Payment is only taken after you have your Covid test. 

How quickly will I get my results?2020-12-23T17:39:50+00:00

We’ll email your Covid-19 swab result and travel certificate within 24-48 hours (no results have taken longer than 48 hours since September 2020).

We can guarantee results will be back within 72 hours.

If you do not require a travel certificate, home testing kits for 7-18 year olds may be ordered HERE.

If your child requires a Covid-19 swab for travel purposes, we’re afraid we are unable to help with this as these need to be performed in our clinic which is registered for adults only.

We use the largest private UKAS registered laboratory in London. Our Covid-19 RT-PCR swab is the correct swab test for all international travel.
