This is an on-site test only and must be performed by 3pm to get your results on the same day
Find out if you currently have COVID-19 with results delivered on the same day as your on-site test.
Our UKAS approved PCR Swab Test detects the presence of the RNA of the virus itself. This means that it will pick up the presence of the actual virus in your nose and throat, and is 100% sensitive at detecting any trace of the virus.
If you have taken your test by 3pm then you will then receive your doctor certified results via email that evening.
To get tested, purchase your PCR Swab Test and book your appointment at any of our conveniently located clinics.
I’m due to fly and require a test, is this suitable?
Yes, you will receive a 'fit to fly' certificate with this test.
Where are the in-store testing locations?
Many of our London Medical Laboratory clinics are open 7-days a week and are situated across London and surrounding areas. A full list of our locations can be found here.
Do I need to do any preparation before I take my test?
Please make sure you don’t eat, drink or chew gum at least 30 minutes before you take the mouth and nasal swab test. Doing this can contaminate your sample, which may result in it needing a retest and therefore, delaying your result.
Also, if you are requesting a test for a fit to fly certificate and would like your passport number on the result form, please bring in your documentation to your appointment, or write your passport number on the test request form.
How and when will I receive my results?
So long as your sample is taken by 3pm, then we will process your test and deliver your results via email between 6pm-midnight on the same day.
Will this test show if I’ve had coronavirus before or if I am currently infectious?
No, if you are looking to find out if you have already contracted coronavirus in the past and have developed antibodies, then please order our Coronavirus IgG Antibody Home Test Kit.
However, if you would like to know if you are currently infectious with coronavirus to others, then please order our Coronavirus Rapid 15 Minute Antigen Test.
Does buying this test impact the general supply of test kits?
No, we guarantee that any purchase of testing through us does not impact in any way on the ability of NHS workers or anyone else to get tested for coronavirus.
