Covid-19 Molecular Test

As many countries begin to ease lockdown measures, international travel is gradually re-starting. Many airlines are now requiring PCR test results 48 – 72 hours prior to flight departure. In addition, some countries are requiring a negative PCR test result within 48-72 hours of landing in order to avoid mandatory quarantine upon arrival.

In line with the current guidance by the PHE and MHRA, our private GPs can offer Covid-19 PCR Swab Tests (Molecular test). These tests are for those aged five and older and are typically offered to people with Covid-19 symptoms. Our private GPs can dispatch the test kit within 24 hours of order. The test can be performed easily at home using a swab that takes samples from the throat and the nose. Once it has been sent back and is received by the lab, the results will be available within 24 hours.

* Guaranteed special delivery or couriers will incur additional charge. Test fees at hospitals in cities outside of London and Cambridge may be higher than the published price. For all enquiries, please email care@sirkkanetworks.com

We also continue to offer Abbott antibody lab-based tests (Serology test) using blood samples drawn from the vein by a healthcare professional. Our private GPs can arrange this at their clinics in London, Reading and Cambridge. Lab results can be available within 24 hours of receipt of the tests. The specificity  (the true negative rate) of the test is 100% and the sensitivity (the true positive rate) of the test is 98%.

Our private GPs are  now able to travel to company offices with appropriate PPE and safety measures to draw blood samples or perform swab tests for all staff. In addition, our doctors can work with companies to put a Occupational Health plan in place. These plans may include measures such as temperature checks, physical distancing, home working, Antigen PCR testing of symptomatic workers or monthly spot testing of a percentage of the workforce to ensure a “COVID free status.”
