How can I get a next day Covid-19 PCR test and results?
We are a testing centre in Central London offering same and next day Covid-19 PCR test results. We have an in-house laboratory testing facility that is CQC compliant.
We control the whole client pathway from swab to result preventing delays that can come with swab transportation from testing clinic to laboratory.

One machine is dedicated to same day results, providing the test is completed/delivered before 4pm, which means we can guarantee a next day result for our clients.

Covid-19 testing for the purposes of fit to travel or return to work are not currently available on the NHS. Additionally, if you are eligible for a test on the NHS you could be waiting up to 5 days for your result.
Unfortunately, the NHS are only managing to achieve 15% of tests with same day results. This compares to 99.8% of same day test results at our in-house laboratory facility.

Covid-19 PCR swabs need to be analysed in a specialised laboratory.

This provides the most proficient service for our clients as it is directly swab to lab ensuring we know where your swab is at all times and allowing a extremely fast turnaround of results.
