PCR Swab Tests

The most accurate test to see if you are currently infected with the virus is a PCR swab test. Swab tests are taken from the back of the throat and the nose. The swab is analysed in a laboratory with the result usually available 36-48 hours from receipt of the sample. The test is most reliable when taken by a trained healthcare professional.

We can arrange for you to take the test at home if you know you have symptoms.
