Our private COVID-19 testing is available for individuals and companies. We are proud to be a UK distributor of the UK government approved Healgen rapid nasal swab test which can tell you whether you have the virus at present. The test gives a result in 15 minutes.
Our second test is a nasal swab that is then sent away to an approved laboratory and analysed (PCR test). The results are available after 48 hours. This test is suitable for those needing to travel and who require a doctors’ certificate confirming their COVID status.
OnCall Doctors is an applicant to UKAS -the UK Accreditation Service for COVID-19 testing. We are on the UK Governments approved list for private testing.
Rapid 15-minute test
At present we are offering a unique visiting service which involves our GP or health professional coming to you to test you and your family at home. The test involves a deep nasal swab (which can be slightly uncomfortable) and the swab is then mixed with a reagent. The resulting mixture is analysed, and the result is obtained in 15 minutes.
PCD Covid test
The PCR (polymerase chain reaction or RT-PCR) is a laboratory-based test. We conduct the test by doing a nasal/throat swab and this is then analysed in the laboratory. Until our centre opens we can conduct this test in your own home and provide certification if required e.g. for fit to fly purposes.
