We have two covid tests.
The first is Rapid Antigen Later Flow test which is a rapid diagnostic test suitable for point-of-care testing that directly detects the presence or absence of an antigen. It is commonly used for the detection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The results are received after 15mins and a Fit to fly certificate is given depending on a negative test.
The second test is a PCR test which is a test that looks for the genetic code (RNA) of the virus. The test involves taking a swab of the throat and nose. The test will confirm if an individual who is showing symptoms of the virus currently has it. It will not confirm whether they have had it and have now recovered. The sample is sent to the lab for analysis and the results are sent back to us. We then provide a certificate depending on a negative result.
Depending on what country you are traveling to, they will require you to have a negative covid test result within a certain period for example 72 hours. To check which test is what test is needed we advise asking your airline or checking the government website.

The 360 Medical exam with a comprehensive blood test was very good value for money, and the clinician's care, explanation of results and detailed medical advice were all superb. I'd recommend the service and practice in a heartbeat.
