COVID-19 PCR Test Home Visiting Service

The COVID-19 PCR test looks for the presence of genetic material from the COVID-19 virus on a swab taken from your throat.  It is a very accurate test and will be able to confirm whether you are actively infected with the virus at the time the swab sample is taken.

PCR tests are being used to rule out COVID-19 infection before travel, or before resuming other activities.

The COVID-19 PCR test requires a throat swab sample to be collected under the direct supervision of our nurse, and the sample is then sent back to our laboratory to be analysed.

The COVID-19 PCR test we use is approved by Public Health England

We can provide results within 24 – 48 hours from receipt of the sample by the laboratory, depending on your requirements. This includes the provision of certificates for travel.
