The form will generate a unique code which can be entered on your Passenger Locator Form. All data is held securely on our systems. The link will be sent in your confirmation email.

The PCR swab test itself is 100% sensitive in detecting the presence of the RNA of coronavirus and will pick up the presence of COVID-19 in your nose and throat.

To qualify for the Test to Release scheme, simply follow the steps below:

1. Book your in-Clinic appointment for the 5th day after your return to the UK.

2. On the purchase confirmation page, follow the link to register your test with us and complete your registration. You will then be given a
unique code to reference when you fill out your UK government passenger locator form. This form can only be completed within 48 hours of your return trip.

3. Attend your in-store appointment and we will conduct your test for you. Your test result will then be sent to you via email as soon as it is available and if coronavirus is not detected, you can end your quarantine. Please note that this test is in additional to the mandatory day 2 and 8 tests for all international arrivals.


Yes, we are on both the UK government’s general testing providers’ list and “Test to Release” list. This means that we not only meet the standards required for coronavirus testing but can provide this test which is used to determine if international travellers returning to the UK qualify for a shortened 5-day quarantine period.

You should receive your test result the day after our lab has received your sample. Samples are sent to our labs daily, therefore we expect results to be provided the day after you visit our clinic in most cases. However, in a small percentage of cases, a sample may require retesting if the result is found to be inconclusive. In the case a sample requires a retest then it will be processed the day after it was tested first time.

Please make sure you do not eat, drink, chew gum, smoke or brush your teeth at least 30 minutes before you take the mouth swab. Doing this can contaminate your sample which may result in it needing a retest and therefore, delay your result.
