    the test conducted on the sample is a nucleic acid test for COVID-19; and
    the result of the test is the relevant traveller was tested negative for COVID-19; and
  • The laboratory or healthcare institution is ISO 15189 accredited or is recognised or approved by the relevant authority of the government of the place in which the laboratory or healthcare institution is located
  • [Optional] A written confirmation in English or Chinese issued by the laboratory or healthcare institution bearing the name of the relevant traveller identical to that in his or her valid travel document and setting out all of the above information.

FAQs

There are 3 outcomes of your test:

  • Positive - You are infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Please immediately follow PHE England guidance to isolate along with your household
  • Negative - You are not infected with the virus. Please continue to take sensible precautions, if you were self-isolating as an international arrival you may stop self-isolating.
  • Invalid - Occurs in 1-3% of samples. Typically (but not exclusively) this arises when insufficient human material is present on the swab sample, and is more frequent with home test kit samples. It can be mitigated by using our practitioner-led testing service. You must continue to isolate as an international arrival

Once you've collected your sample (self-test) or seen a practitioner for a sample collection, you will need to register your kit barcode according to the provided instructions. Results will be sent through to the registered email. Please check your junk mail if no results have been received at the expected time, and then contact info@mayfieldclinic.co.uk if still not resolved.

Although we seek to use the most accurate tests available, no test is 100% accurate and we are not able to guarantee a specific outcome from your COVID-19 test.

Results timelines should be treated as a guideline; they are not guaranteed and you should make plans accordingly. Please read our COVID-19 Testing Terms and Conditions and our Terms and Conditions.

All of our PCR tests include a test result that can be used for travel. This result acts as a 'Fit To Fly' certificate. By confirming your result, your identity (including a passport number), your personal details, and the time and date of the swab sample and laboratory report, we can create this official certification suitable for travel.

Confirm if you are currently carrying SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection by taking a PCR test. A PCR test is appropriate for identifying current infection from between day 0 (the day of first exposure) up to day 14. After day 14, an antibody test may be more suitable
