Unlike other test providers, Medicspot’s Test Hub service does not rely on the Royal Mail to transport your swab sample to the lab. Our same-day medical courier network ensures that your sample reaches the lab on the same day to generate results as soon as possible.

Royal Mail returned samples are not recommended as there are often significant delays in getting your sample back to the lab through the postal system – even more so at weekends. This leads to inevitable delays in receiving results, particularly if you require them in quick time frames such as 72 or 96 hours.

Covid-19 is a communicable (infectious) disease and can be passed onto other people even more easily when in confined spaces (such as planes). It is imperative that you follow medical guidance to ensure that you don't pass the virus onto others when travelling or returning back. This is still the case if you have been vaccinated - especially due to the emergence of new variants

Air travel, in particular, can be dangerous when suffering from a respiratory illness such as Covid-19 because of the drop in oxygen that occurs at altitude. It is imperative that you don't have any symptoms of a respiratory infection before you fly. You will be asked a series of questions upon registering your kit to ensure you are not suffering from any of these type of symptoms.

We recommend placing your order as soon as possible to reserve your test.

After ordering, we will instantly reserve your test kit, ready for you to collect within 90 days at Curapharm Chemist in London.

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 applicant laboratories to provide this testing to ensure fast and accurate results. Our medical team then makes a diagnosis based on your symptoms and test result. Our Covid-19 PCR test has a sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 100% when performed correctly.

Your sample can be collected in a gentle and non-invasive way using the provided swab.

Clear instructions on how to take your swab will be provided in your test kit.

Covid-19 home tests, where samples are processed at home instead of a laboratory, are not clinically validated.

This is a clinically validated laboratory-based Covid-19 PCR test, processed at our UKAS applicant laboratories which is also used by the NHS.

Our swab test is self-performed by the patient (who may collect their sample at home), however, samples are sent to our UKAS applicant laboratories for analysis.

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.

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 or have any evidence of respiratory disease.

You must register your kit before returning it to the pharmacy. 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.
