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.

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.

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

What we offer

Clinician-led PCR testing from a healthcare professional and home self swabbing test kits which can conveniently be posted directly to you. These enable travel to and from countries listed Green and Amber; and due to our rapid turnaround times (same day, next day and 48 hour results). This means that we can easily and efficiently conform to the entry requirements of international destinations with no concern for our customers. We expect our customers to consult the necessary websites to check if the correct travel test is being booked, but with our wide variety of test types and certifications we are always able to help.

PCR tests are the most commonly accepted form of COVID-19 testing whether that is for flying abroad or any other reason. However, many countries are now accepting rapid antigen testing which has been reviewed and approved by a doctor or alternatively proof of recovery from coronavirus. We provide a national video call service for both of these or if you prefer you can come into one of our selected clinics also

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).
