Results turnaround


Hello @Dr_Paula

I was just wondering how long it will take to get results back? I am due to be moving abroad for a few months and I was wondering what happens if you are positive for something but not around to get anti biotics?

Also just to add, my swab didn’t come in a clear zip bag - is it still ok to use?


Hello @M119951

We should provide results within 72 hours, however some of our labs have been told to do Covid 19 testing so there have been some delays recently.

If you test positive and you have travelled out of the UK then we can advise you what treatment you need and you should be able to get it most places in the world.

Yes the swab should still be OK.

Many thanks
