Positive The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab. You will not be able to travel or reduce your quarantine time and we will inform NHS Public Health about your positive result. Medicspot will provide you with a free private doctor consultation if you test positive.
Inconclusive/Needs Repeated Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This may occur due to poor sample taking technique. If your result is inconclusive, we will offer you a replacement test.
