Private covid tests, such as our COVID-19 RT-PCR Swab test, are available for dispatch across the UK
Getting a private covid test when you don’t have symptoms
If you do not have coronavirus symptoms currently but are concerned you might have been exposed to the virus or need to demonstrate a negative covid test result for business or travel reasons, private covid testing is a quick and reliable option.
Currently, the NHS will only offer you a free covid test if you are symptomatic, are living with someone who has virus symptoms or are taking part in the government pilot project. If these situations do not apply to you, but you want to be tested for coronavirus, a private covid test is a convenient alternative and is actually recommended by the NHS for people who do not meet their current testing criteria.
Why order a private covid test?
Choosing private covid testing means you get a fast, reliable service and do not have to travel to a testing centre to complete the test or wait in a queue to be tested.
Private covid testing is quick and easy to book online. The home-to-laboratory covid testing kit is quickly dispatched to your chosen address so you can complete the test in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you.
You can then choose from a range of fast return options, including UPS Courier pick up or Royal Mail 24 hour tracked return. The test is quickly processed at one of a number of dedicated laboratory sites, with the results sent direct to you via email.
If you are self-isolating or are unable to travel to a testing site, private testing is a convenient alternative to ensure that you get accurate results quickly, giving you peace of mind. Private covid testing is also a helpful option if you want to guarantee a test result in a short turnaround time.
