How it works

Who should have this test

Our Covid-19 Home Testing kit is analysed in a UKAS registered leading UK laboratory and is approved by Public Health England. 

The Covid-19 home testing kit is for individuals aged 7 years and over. Here are some of the reasons why people may have the test:

  • If you have symptoms of coronavirus (continuous cough, fever or loss of smell/taste)
  • If you have had recent close contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19
  • If you are due to be admitted to hospital and need to show you do not have Covid-19
  • If your school or workplace require you to confirm your Covid-19 status
  • If are visiting an elderly or vulnerable individual to minimise their risk of exposure to Covid-19  

Do not request a Covid-19 home testing kit for travel purposes. This requires an in-clinic test with an ID check, to book this service please CLICK HERE.

How to do the test

Full instructions on how to perform the tests are included with the kit. The test involves taking a swab sample from the back of the throat and both nostrils. WATCH THIS VIDEO to see the proper technique. (Please note – the exact equipment in your pack may vary from the kit shown in the video.)

Once you’ve taken the swab, return it to the laboratory via a PRIORITY POST BOX (postage & packaging supplied).

Results are securely emailed to you within 24-48 hours of the sample arriving at the laboratory. 

Please note that insufficient secretions on the swab may give an invalid result. (Occurs in <1% of swabs.)

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

Frequently asked questions

Can I use a home testing kit to obtain a travel certificate?2020-12-23T17:38:58+00:00

No. All our travel certificates are verified on the basis of a photo ID check when you have your swab taken at our clinic. 

How do I purchase Covid-19 tests for more than one person?2020-12-23T17:39:10+00:00

Please make an individual  purchase for each person that requires a test. 

How quickly will I get my results?2020-12-23T17:39:46+00:00

We’ll email your Covid-19 swab result within 24-48 hours of the sample arriving back at the laboratory. 

Can my child have a Covid-19 PCR test?2020-12-23T17:39:56+00:00

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.

What type of Covid-19 test am I getting?2020-12-23T17:40:07+00:00

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.
