It is compulsory to book and pay for Covid testing to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of your quarantine. If you passed through or visited a country on the red list 10 days before arriving in England, please follow the UK government guidance.
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 ordering your travel test package as soon as possible to guarantee that you reserve your test kits.
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.
You will perform your sample using a gentle and non-invasive swab. Clear instructions on how to take your swab will be provided in your test kit.
We'll send your test kits with free delivery to your home.
Once you’ve collected your swab samples, you can use a pre-paid retunrs label to send your tests back to our lab via a Royal Mail Priority Postbox.
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 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.
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, our dedicated customer service team will be happy to help via live chat.Chat with us
