Test and Release COVID-19 Test- Posted or book in Shrewsbury & Wolverhampton

Private COVID-19 testing for test and release purposes reduces your mandatory self isolation period on return to the UK.

PCR testing detects whether you have the COVID-19 coronavirus and allows you to be exempt from self isolation subject to a ‘negative’ result.

The simple to administer and accurate test can be posted to you or undertaken at our clinics in Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton and we courier your test to the lab the same day.

There is no symptom questionnaire to complete and you may self-refer for a test. 

Tests purchased from us are have no impact on the availability to NHS workers. All costs associated with providing this service are fairly reflected in our fees and is in no way funded by the government.
