PCR Swab Tests

The most accurate test to see if you are currently infected with the virus is a PCR swab test. These virus tests are sometimes referred to as antigen tests. 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 24 hours from receipt of the sample. The test is most reliable when taken by a healthcare professional.

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

If you require a certificate confirming a negative result for travel or work, the swab will need to be taken by one of our clinical staff to ensure that the test is performed accurately.
