      How can I get a same day Manchester Covid 19 PCR test and results?

      We control the whole client pathway from swab to result meaning we can provide same day test results. We have two in-house PCR analysis machines with a team of technicians working around the clock. One machine is dedicated to same day results, providing the test is completed/delivered before 12 noon, which means we can guarantee a same day result for our Manchester clients.

      Why should I use the Covid 19 PCR Testing clinic, Manchester?

      Our COVID 19 PCR testing operation was set up during the early days of the response to the pandemic, and we have honed our testing protocols through the various stages of lockdowns, tiers and travel restrictions.

      We have issued over 10,000 COVID test certificates and have a proven, high-quality testing service. We can now offer this service through our Manchester site, in the most convenient City Centre location, right next to Piccadilly Station. No need for an extra visit to the airport, or to an out of the way specialist clinic – just book online and walk-in for your test.

      And if you need a same-day COVID-19 PCR test, you can take the test up until 12.00 noon and still receive the results the same day.

      When should I consider a same day Manchester Covid 19 PCR test and result?

      A same day Covid-19 test result offers much needed reassurance, or quickly confirms a suspected case. 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. 

      Why is it difficult to get a same day result Covid 19 PCR test in Manchester?

      Covid-19 PCR swabs need to be analysed in a specialised laboratory, and there are very few of these labs in Manchester. Current testing clinics will require group transportation of swabs samples (usually once a day) to a chosen laboratory that has a slot free. Our Lab is an in-house facility and dedicated to our clients and their results. The samples are transported by our medical couriers, safely and straight to the laboratory ensuring we know where your swab is at all times and allowing a fast turnaround of results.

      What is a Fit to Fly certificate?

      Your certificate containing your Covid 19 PCR test result is signed by our Medical Director, and emailed to you. It is approved for travel (known as “Fit to Fly”). It can then be printed out or used digitally via your smartphone.

      We are a private provider listed on the Government website to carry out the “Fit to Release” Covid 19 PCR tests that can allow early release from quarantine for returning travellers from certain countries (please check the Gov.uk  site for the latest updates).

      What is the Covid 19 PCR test travel certificate? And do you provide them in Manchester?

      If you are hoping to travel abroad, you should check the latest government guidelines for updates on the country you are visiting. Many destinations require proof of a recent Covid-19 test in the form of a travel certificate. If you are unable to provide this it means you may not be permitted to enter the country.

      The type of test required for travel is a Covid-19 PCR test, which will detect if you are currently infected with the virus. The test is internationally recognised as the gold standard of Covid-19 screening and therefore a negative result is necessary for entry into another country.

      Our PCR test includes a results certificate which counts as a ‘fit to fly’. It is signed by our medical director clearly stating the type of test conducted, the results reported and clear clinical comment. Please note this document is sent via PDF to the email address you provide and is not printed. If you require this document as a hard copy you will be responsible for printing this.

      When can I not get a Manchester Covid 19 PCR test?

      If any of the below statements are true you will not be permitted to visit our Manchester clinic. 

      • You have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 10 days.
      • You have experienced any symptoms of Covid-19 in last 10 days. 
      • You have knowingly had contact with someone with Covid-19 within the last 10 days.

      • You have travelled from a red list country in the last 10 days.

      Why do I need a private Covid-19 PCR test to get a Fit to Fly certificate?

      Private Covid-19 PCR testing is required for travel by the Government, who have said that NHS testing services are not suitable for this purpose. We provide private Covid testing in Manchester and London to meet the needs of travellers and other people who need a private COVID-19 test, with a certificate provided for all PCR tests.

      What is the difference between a private PCR COVID-19 test and a Lateral Flow Test?

      A private Covid-19 PCR test provides the certificate of testing that airlines and most overseas countries require to travel and enter those countries. It is considered the gold standard of Covid-19 testing as it can reliably detect if you are currently infected with the virus. A lateral flow test, or antigen test, gives a good indication of coronavirus when the infection is at its peak, but is not quite as reliable as the PCR test.

      Airport Covid-19 PCR Testing

      You don’t need to go to the airport to get airport Covid-19 testing. Our services meet the needs for COVID-19 testing, we are listed as a private provider on Government website and registered with the CQC. So there’s no need for an extra trip to the airport – we issue PCR test certificates that meet the “Fit to Fly” requirements for all major airlines and entry requirements for most countries, so you can be assured that we can meet your needs. And from a convenient, city-centre location, close to major transport hubs.

      So, why take a trip to the airport when you can get your airport Covid-19 testing here?

      Need a Covid-19 test for your driving test?

      It’s advisable to take a Covid-19 test before you take your driving test with the examiner. The government recommends you take a Rapid Antigen (Lateral Flow) test before you go for your driving test.

      We offer the full range of Covid-19 tests including rapid antigen tests (lateral flow tests) with results within 1 hour.

      We also offer Fit-to Fly PCR certification, same day and next day service, Test to Release, Day 2 and Day 8 arrival testing, or antibody testing.

      We will update you when we can offer an express COVID-19 PCR test and Fit to Fly certificates for travel to Jersey and Qatar. It’s not available at this time.

      Do you require ISO certification with your Covid-19 test result?

      We have recently observed an increase in airlines stipulating ISO (International Organization for Standardisation) certification. Please check carefully with your airline as we are not able to offer this certification at present. However, we will soon have this capacity and will update you accordingly.
