Day 2 and 8 Covid-19 PCR Testing (Home Kit)

If you require a home postal kit for arriving into England between the 1st-4th of January 2022, please note you will not receive your test kit until the 5th of January due to postal delays over New Year's Bank Holiday. We have closed bookings over these dates for this reason.

Changes to testing regulations

  • From 04:00 GMT on Sunday 9 January you will only have to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test on day 2. But this test must be bought from a private test provider - free NHS tests are not allowed. People who are fully vaccinated and those aged under-18 will no longer need to take a test two days before travelling to England from countries outside the UK and the Common Travel Area.
  • Unvaccinated passengers will need to continue to take a pre-departure test, PCR tests on day two and day eight, and self-isolate for 10 days. Please see the Government website for full updates.

The Regenerative Lab are now approved for compulsory Government Day 2 and Day 8 Covid-19 PCR and Rapid Antigen Testing. We are proud to be one of the few private providers on the government website with our own in house lab and PCR machines. This means that we have control of your test through every stage, from the first swab to the results.

Your test result/Fit to Fly certificate will be issued via email, please check your spam/junk and if not received please email diagnostics@theregenerativeclinic.co.uk.
