During this period of pandemic and unknown in relation to COVID-19, Summerfield Healthcare is committed to offering only what we believe to be the best products currently on the market.
See below, for available COVID-19 antibody testing methods.
Roche’s antibody test has been FDA approved and detects IgG antibodies.
The test may be used to reliably detect whether someone has been infected by COVID-19 and what the presence of long- term antibodies is.
A ‘detected’ result means you have previously been infected with COVID-19 and have developed antibodies.
A ‘not detected’ result means you have not developed antibodies and therefore it is unlikely you have had the virus.
An ‘equivocal’ result suggests you have tested too early since being infected and should retest in 7 days.
We consider the Siemens’ SARS-COV-2 Total Antibody is the best test on the market to date, whilst not FDA approved Siemens “expect to exceed the stringent FDA quality guidelines”.
The total antibody test assesses the presence of IgG, IgM & IgA antibodies relating to COVID-19.
According to public health institutes such as the CDC, total antibody tests offer better sensitivity than IgG-only antibody tests in identifying people who have been recently infected with COVID-19.
IgG alone may be better for assessing long term durable immunity. However, current scientific evidence is not conclusive this will be the case in COVID-19. Given this uncertainty, a COVID-19 Total Antibody test will deliver the best and most accurate results.
“An independent appraisal of assay performance to determine performance metrics with precision using a large, well-characterised sample set.”

Although Summerfield Healthcare is a private practice our fees are low cost and structured with you in mind. Initial consultation fees are listed below:
Due to the recently announced lockdown in England, Summerfield Healthcare is currently only able to offer a limited number of clinical services including:
For some services we continue to offer such as health checks and minor surgery we are now providing COVID-19 testing for all patients and Doctors. This is mandatory due to the proximity of the practitioner, the duration of the appointment and multiple clinicians also being involved in your treatment. An additional £10 will be included in the appointment fee at the point of payment to cover the cost of COVID testing, and your booking confirmation will reflect this requirement. This is not required for blood testing due to the short duration of appointments and reduced risk of exposure.
If you cannot find the service you are looking for or it is not available to book due to the lockdown, please enter your details below and the service you require and we will contact you when the service resumes. Please remember that all COVID testing services are continuing during lockdown.
