Testing

Test Site

In the event we offer a testing site you must abide by the rules, policies and instructions of our staff.  The process of taking a sample can be uncomfortable and all of our staff are property trained to take samples if they ever have to assist you and it is appropriate that they assist you. Whilst we advise you to take on board all their guidance, we stress you are responsible at all times for ensuring that your test is accurate.

Home Tests

The purposes of our Home Test (self-swab) PCR tests that we offer in our service are to pick up the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the nose and throat. The swab samples that you take as part of the testing processes should be labelled by you with each patients details before being sent to be analysed by our partner labs. A positive result signifies the virus is present and the negative that there was no evidence of the virus.  

 

The purpose of our Home Test (self-swab) Antibody Test is to pick up the presence of IgG antibodies to viral antigen in your blood. A negative result signifies that there was no evidence of previous infection with the virus from the test.

The purpose of our Lateral Flow Test (self-test) is to detect the presence of viral antigens in your system. A negative results signifies that there was no evidence of the virus from the test.

You assume full responsibility for complying with the instructions included within our testing kits that we provide to you.  Not following these instructions may render results unreliable. We will not be obligated to offer refunds as a result of inaccurate results arising from our test kits as long as our service is delivered with reasonable diligence and care. You accept that no test is 100% accurate and that there is a risk of false positives and false negatives.  These risks are inherent to the testing process and we will not be obligated to offer a refund if such a result occurs.

If ordering for multiple people the first person additionally needs to state a delivery address, which should be the address covering all people tests are ordered for. All fields should be completed for patients 2,3,4 and 5. Failure to complete all fields may result in your test being cancelled without refund. This is because all details are required to be collected by the Government and/or to be submitted to Public Health England. If you unintentionally omit information or provide inaccurate information we will make reasonable effort to contact you to complete or update your details. However, it is your responsibility to ensure information you provide is complete and accurate.  If you are unresponsive and all information is not obtained, your test will not be able to be completed and you will not be entitled to a refund.
