Is the test reliable?

Summerfield Healthcare is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is permitted to provide this testing under its registered services. We are also on gov.uk lists for COVID-19 general testing, test to release and for day 2 and day 8 testing.

Testing for the active virus is 100% accurate, on correct collection of the sample.

If you are feeling unwell please visit: https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/ 

Why you need two COVID-19 tests:

A common question we are asked is ‘Why do I have to take a test on day 2 if I have to continue isolating despite a negative result, and then also have to take another test on day 8?’. The answer is because the test you take on day 2 is to determine not only if you are positive for COVID-19, but more importantly if you have contracted a variant or suspected variant of COVID-19 which UK vaccinations are less effective against. Due to the additional processes involved in detecting variants the turnaround time for day 2 testing results is up to 72 hours.

A further test is required on day 8 to re-confirm the negative result (in most cases) which is obtained following the day 2 test.

These tests are required for all international arrivals from non red zones.
