F.A.Q

What tests are there for COVID-19?

We offer two different tests:

  • The PCR COVID-19 throat swab test tells you if you had COVID-19 when you took the sample
  • The COVID-19 antibody blood test will tell you if you have had COVID-19 in the past

You can take the PCR test in your home or at your workplace or the Antibody test at one of our main Central London clinics.

Who should take the COVID-19 Antibody test?

The antibody test is for people who think they might have had COVID-19 and recovered from it, or who think they might have had a case without symptoms. The antibody test will give you peace of mind if you are wondering whether you have had COVID-19.

Who should take the COVID-19 PCR test?

Anyone who is worried that they been exposed to COVID-19 can take the PCR test. You may be experiencing COVID19 symptoms or you may think you have been exposed to COVID19.

Or you may be caring for a person who is particularly vulnerable to COVID19 and want to check yourself for your own peace of mind.

If you have COVID19 symptoms, then you need to self-isolate to protect others.

UK Nationwide Postal Tests

A postal testing service is available from the website if you cannot get to London. If you order a kit before 12 midday Monday – Friday this will be shipped the same day and should arrive with you the following day. Orders placed after 12 midday Monday – Thursday will be shipped the following day, arriving with you two days after order. Orders placed after midday on Friday, will be dispatched on Monday and should arrive with you on Tuesday. You can then post the kit back to the lab.

Samples returned via Royal Mail Priority Post Boxes should reach the lab in the following 24 hours. Once a sample is delivered to the lab, the lab usually takes 48 hours to process the test, though it can sometimes take longer.

Please check which date you need to test to meet your particular requirements before you purchase a kit online. If you need to test on a Saturday or Sunday, the postal service will NOT be suitable for you. You will need to come into one of our London-based clinics for testing. Please contact us to make a booking.

All customers purchasing these tests must use their own judgement about the best date to purchase, carry out and return the test to CityDoc. The company cannot take responsibility for any test timelines and associated outcomes affecting travel.

When do I get the results of my PCR COVID-19 test?

The whole process takes three to five working days. Once you have taken the test, send the sample back in the postage-paid 1st class Royal Mail envelope provided. If the test is posted before 12 midday, it should arrive with the lab within 24 hours. Once the test is received by the lab, it usually takes 48 hours for your results to be processed. Our patient care representatives are ready to help you interpret your Covid-19 test results and to help you understand the next steps.
