Day 5 Test-to-Release

This service allows individuals an opportunity to shorten their quarantine time from 10 days to 5 days. On your 5th day, you can do a PCR test and release yourself from quarantine upon receiving a negative result.

1. What is a PCR test?

The PCR test, sometimes also known as the Rt-PCR test, looks for the presence of the virus’s RNA in a swab sample taken from your nose/throat. The RNA is the genetic material contained within a virus. When your sample reaches the laboratory, a process called real time polymerase chain reaction (Rt-PCR) is commenced. If there is viral RNA present, this process starts a ‘chain reaction’ and creates billions of copies of the viral genetic material so that there is a sufficient quantity to be detected and analysed by scientists in order for a positive result to be obtained. In the event of no COVID-19 RNA being detected, a negative result will be reported.

2. How much does the test cost?

Our in-clinic COVID-19 PCR test is priced at £99.

3. How long do results take?
      • Same day results will be guaranteed if your appointment is carried out before 11am.
      • Next day results are guaranteed if your appointment is carried out after 11am.
4. Are certificates issued?

Yes, most certainly! A laboratory report with a certificate is issued.

5. What if my result is a positive?

If you receive a positive result, you and anyone living with you must self-isolate and follow the latest government guidance which can be found here:

6. How will I receive my results?
