UK Departure COVID-19 PCR Test for Travel Purposes

We provide a range of testing. This includes the RT-PCR  test. The required certification is emailed as a PDF document following a negative confirmation from our laboratory. The latest certificate issue time is 4-6 pm the following day, however, this is frequently much earlier but not on the same day as the test itself. We have elected not to provide 2 day testing when arriving back into Scotland.

The RAPID Antigen / Point of Care (POC) tests takes less than fifteen minutes. If negative, the required certification is also emailed as a PDF document immediately after negative confirmation.

The COVID-19 RT-PCR and antigen swab tests require a nasal swab samples, this will be taken by our trained nurses following UKAS  ISO/IEC 17025 testing standards which are then analysed by our partner UKAS ISO 5189 laboratories.

We test up to seven days a week. We also deploy nurses to client locations, this includes work sites, offshore, wind farms and marine vessels.
