If travelling, Covid testing may be essential, so ask how long before your journey you need to complete the test and factor in a 1 to 2 day period after the test to get your results back from the lab.

This means that if you are required to have a test within 72 hours of flying you will need to get the test done no more than 72 hours prior to travel to ensure your results are back before you fly.

A negative result is required. Do not leave it to the day before.

PCR tests look for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual who is showing symptoms of the virus currently has it. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered.

PCR tests take up to 48 hours as the collected samples need to be analysed by a UK based lab.

This test is applicable for those that require testing for AIR TRAVEL, WORK or similar purposes.

Please note that it is the patient responsibility to understand the requirements of the Airline or test-requiring agency with regard to timing of the swab test and thus we cannot give specific advice in this respect.
