A Covid-19 PCR test looks for the presence of the Covid-19 virus on a sample taken from your nose and throat; collected using a long cotton bud. Medicspot has partnered with a world-class UKAS accredited laboratory to provide this testing to ensure fast and accurate results. Our Covid-19 PCR test has a sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 100% when performed correctly.
We'll send you a test kit with free courier delivery to your home. Once you’ve collected your swab sample, you can use a pre-paid Royal Mail priority post box to send your test back to our UKAS accredited laboratory.
There are many different types of Covid-19 tests and home tests have not been clinically validated. Our PCR swab test is self-performed by the patient (who may be at home) but sent to our UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis. This is a clinically validated laboratory-based test which is also used by the NHS.
Negative – You do not have any evidence of an active infection.
Positive – The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab. You will not be able to travel and we will inform NHS Public Health about your positive result.
Inconclusive/Needs Repeated – Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This is often due to poor sample taking technique. You will need to purchase another swab kit.
You must register your kit before returning it via Royal Mail. If you have problems registering your kit on a mobile device, please use a desktop computer. If you need further assistance, please call Medicspot’s customer service line, who can complete the form over the phone.
At the time of registering your swab, you can choose to include your passport number on your fit to fly certificate as this is required by some countries. For extra peace of mind, you can also complete a short medical questionnaire stating that you don’t have any symptoms of Covid-19; which is required by some other countries.
You will be issued a doctor-signed fit to fly certificate if you test negative for Covid-19. However, if you test negative and another member of your household tests positive, we will not be able to issue you with a fit to fly certificate as you should not travel due to guidelines. We do not issue fit to fly certificates if you test positive for Covid-19.
To ensure that you receive your results on time, we promise to do all that we can to send your swab kit out on time and process your results within 24 hours of the lab receiving your sample. However, we cannot take responsibility for any delays occurring out of our control, i.e. Royal Mail delivering your swab kit or receiving your sample back at the lab. We aim for 100% customer satisfaction and encourage customers to leave their feedback by emailing email@example.com.
