Our trained clinicians will collect your swab sample

Get your results

Register your kit and receive your results via email

When you visit one of our clinics for a clinician-led test, a trained healthcare professional will collect the required sample from you. Having a trained professional take the sample reduces the risk of invalid results. Additionally, our clinicians can provide signed certification confirming your identity and that they collected the sample.

Yes, the scheme rules state that you can attend the clinic to collect a test or have a sample collected. You are also allowed to exit your isolation address to post a sample.

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.

Yes, once you've registered your barcode, results are sent 24/7

Please bring photo ID. If you want your passport number added to any documentation, please also bring your passport.

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.

What we offer

Many international countries now require visitors to take a COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure. You should check your destination's requirements, but most likely you will need our same day PCR testing service, or our next day fit to fly PCR testing service. Our clinicians will collect your sample, and you results will be sent through in reliable fashion in the timeline purchased. Our same day PCR service is an ultrafast travel testing service, with results often back within 12 hours. You can book your PCR test in Chelsea via the link above. Our clinician-led COVID-19 appointment service allows for our expert doctors and healthcare clinicians to collect your sample, and if necessary they can provide a signed certificate.

Reliable and trustworthy private PCR testing

At Mayfield clinic we use highly sought after healthcare practitioners across the country and are a service which has passed UKAS Stage 3 provision for COVID-19 testing. This enables us to be an approved provider of tests as stated on the government website and to ensure time effective results.

Why use Mayfield Clinic's testing services?

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).
