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

We are a testing centre with headquarters in Central London and labs across the UK, offering same 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. 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, which means we can guarantee a same day result for our clients.

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

A same day Covid-19 test result offers the much need 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.

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.

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

Covid-19 PCR swabs need to be analysed in a specialised laboratory. Other testing clinics require group transportation of swabs samples (usually once a day) to a chosen laboratory that has a slot free. However, at the Regenerative Lab we have an in-house laboratory facility and dedicated same day result PCR analysis machine. 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 an extremely fast turnaround of results.

Are you required to prove negative Covid-19 PCR test result for travel or return to work?

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.

Alternatively, if you are looking to return to work some employers may ask for a recent Covid-19 test. Testing in the workplace can help protect business continuity can provide confidence to employees.

The type of test required 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 some travel abroad and return to work.

When can I not get a same day Covid-19 PCR test result?

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

  • 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.

If you are looking to get Covid-19 PCR tests for a large group, school, business, or home visit, please call us on 0330 2233332 or email us at bookings@theregenerativeclinic.co.uk.

Can I get a Covid-19 PCR test at home test kit with same day results?

We are currently unable to offer any home testing kits.

Have you purchased a Covid-19 PCR test from a local pharmacy?

In our testing clinic we have a team of healthcare professionals to conduct the swab testing, however, we understand you may have collected a test kit from elsewhere. We have an in-house laboratory facility available and are happy to take your completed test for analysis. Having this in-house facility means we can turn around your result quickly and efficiently.

What is the difference between a Covid-19 PCR test and other Covid-19 Antigen tests?

A private Covid-19 PCR test provides the certificate of testing that airlines and many 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. The latest travel testing requirements means that some countries are now accepting Covid-19 Lateral Flow (rapid) tests for entry, please check your specific requirements before booking a test with us.

In this very fast-moving climate, significant investment and products are coming onto the Covid-19 screening market. Our team of clinicians and researchers are working around the clock to deliver the latest and most reliable screening services.

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

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.

Do you require a Covid-19 test for travel to Hong Kong?

If you are travelling from England to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific we can provide your Covid-19 PCR test and Fit to Fly certificate. However, due to different guidelines, if you are travelling on British Airways we are currently unable to provide your test and certificate.
