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 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
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.

Many countries for travel now also accept certification confirming proof of recovery from COVID-19 alongside or without testing. To obtain this you can have a consultation with one of our GPs, all that you require is proof of infection within the last 6 months of SARS-CoV-2 via PCR and photo ID. Additionally, to find out whether you have had coronavirus before or have immunity after vaccination we provide antibody tests. Our customers themselves are responsible for checking the entry requirements of the destination they are travelling to and consulting government websites to make sure they are booking an accepted test type for their destination.

Across England, Wales and Scotland, we have highly-trained clinicians who can administer COVID-19 testing- whether that is PCR or Rapid Antigen testing.
