Thank you for booking an appointment at the Mayfield Clinic. Before attending the practice, we ask that you read the following information.
Please do not come to the practice if in the last 14 days:
you have tested positive for COVID-19
you have had a cough, fever, or change to your sense of smell or taste
you have been exposed to COVID-19, or anyone with the above symptoms
you have been abroad in a non-travel corridor destination N.B per government guidelines, you may attend the practice for Test To Release COVID-19 tests
If you have COVID-19 symptoms you can cancel or reschedule your appointment via your online account, or within 24 hours of the appointment you can contact us via email to rearrange. If you are wanting a COVID-19 test because you are symptomatic, we can provide you with a home test kit (please order online) or these can be obtained from the NHS. You will need to complete a COVID triage upon arrival.
Please attend the practice at your allocated appointment time as we are not currently able to provide a waiting room. Please also note that for staff safety, only the patient may attend the clinic. We are not able to provide a waiting room service for any additional guests.

COVID-19 Service Outline
If you are attending the clinic for a PCR or rapid antigen test and require a travel certificate, please bring a hard copy photo ID with you (passport is preferable). We do not accept photos or screenshots.
PCR (48 Hours): Test results typically returned 48 hours from 3PM on the day of sampling.
PCR (Next Day): Test results typically returned next day before midnight. Results are sent to the patient via email.
PCR (Same Day): Test results are typically published that evening before midnight if taken before 11AM. Results are sent to the patient via email.
PCR (Day 2 / Day 8): Timelines are approximately 24 hours once the sample reaches the lab. Samples are sent by Royal Mail tracked 24 and you should allow 24-48 hours for your sample to reach the lab.
Rapid Antigen: The Rapid Antigen (Acon FlowFlex) result certificates are sent out within 3 hours of your appointment. Please ensure in advance of your appointment, if travelling, that Rapid Antigen testing is accepted by your travel destination.
N.B. Occasionally issues outside of our control (e.g., courier delays, lab processing issues, laboratory supply chain issues) may mean that your sample takes longer to return than the target timeline. Because of this we are not able to guarantee a result within a set timeframe. The practice is not liable for any other associated costs should your results be delayed. For travel testing, we recommend planning your testing to ensure you have your results "in-hand" at least 24 hours prior to departure. By submitting your sample you accept this.
