Travel packages for UK residents
Travel packages for UK residents, containing all the tests you require to travel abroad and re-enter the UK
As international travel opens up again, it is important to ensure everything is in order. Which is why Mayfield Clinic, has developed its bespoke travel packages making it quick and easy to book all your necessary test in one simple order. Once you have checked the entry requirements of your destination all you need to do is book the right package and it will arrive straight to your door.
UK travellers planning to travel abroad require a number of different test:
Before booking your test, please check the entry requirement of the country of arrival.
Book the test package which corresponds with all the necessary requirements.
We dispatch all our tests with the Royal Mails tracked 24 service, or collect form our clinic.
We always recommend to complete your test at the earliest possible opportunity.
End your travel isolation by taking a PCR test on Day 5 (where Day 0 is the day of arrival back into the UK). Upon receipt of a negative result, you can end your quarantine.
All of our PCR test results 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.
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
Complete the government's mandatory testing for travellers entering the UK by submitting a Day 2 and Day 8 PCR sample. Positive results from Day 2 are sent for genomic sequencing to identify the strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Once you’ve quarantined for 10 days and received a negative result to both your day 2 and day 8 tests, you may leave the place where you’re quarantining. The only way to shorten this period, is by taking a 'Test To Release' test on or after Day 5
Unfortunately as kits are personalised healthcare items they are non-refundable
Your reference number is MAYFI0 followed by your 6 digit receipt/invoice number issued upon booking. This should be added to your passenger locator form.
If you test positive for either Day 2 or Day 8 test you must quarantine for a further 10 days from the day you took the test – you will receive further advice alongside your test results. Positive day 2 tests are sent for genomic sequencing to check the strain of the virus the patient is carrying. If your test shows that you have a variant of coronavirus known as a ‘variant of concern’, you will get a further call and your contacts will be asked to be tested.
Please always check the instructions provide in your test kit.
Same day Test kits: These can be returned to our clinic in Oxford (before 11AM), the drop box at Salient Bio Labs (before 12PM), or one of the national same day drop boxes (please check the cut off times)

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 email@example.com if still not resolved.
In a crowded market for COVID testing services, three reasons why you should use Mayfield Clinic
Whilst no COVID-19 PCR testing is infallible, throughout the crisis, we've strived to ensure that we consistently deliver PCR coronavirus testing to meet the expectations of our customers. This has included using 7 different laboratories, shifting capacity as required to deliver the fasted and most reliable testing possible.
For our PCR Fit To Fly travel testing, we run daily point-to-point couriers from all of our testing sites directly to the laboratories. This differs from other services that might rely on postal services for Fit To Fly testing.
All of our COVID testing services are overseen by our advisory board of GMC registered general practitioners. Onsite testing services are delivered by General Practitioners or trained Healthcare Professionals. Testing is conducted under our UKAS ISO17025 accreditation and our CQC registration (applicable to our Oxford head office).
