London Fit to Fly Certificate

A Fit to Fly certificate is required by many countries in order to travel internationally. This is to ensure the safety of all passengers on board and to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid-19.

A Fit to Fly certificate is issued after completing a PCR or Antigen test, which involve a nasal/throat swab that checks for active Covid-19. If the results of this test are negative a Fit to Fly certificate is issued and you are ready to travel.

London PCR Test

The PCR test is what most countries and airlines require in order to travel. Our PCR tests come with a Fit to Fly certificate so that upon completion of the test you are ready to travel. 

The PCR test is the most reliable and accurate Covid-19 test capable of detecting even small traces of Covid-19. Your results will be with you next-day.

London Antigen Test

In some cases countries and airlines only require an antigen test. This test checks to see if you have Covid-19. While antigen tests are generally less expensive and produce results quicker they are also less reliable. This is why most countries require the PCR test.

If you would like to book an antigen test we also offer this service, contact us for antigen tests in London that offer same day results!

    The Coronavirus Antibody and PCR (Swab) Tests Explained

    Antibody Tests

    Tests are done in our clinic which produces much faster results than using a postal system. Our doctors and nurses will ensure that sufficient blood is taken to produce a valid result rapidly.

    Our Coronavirus antibody tests are available as an Abbott laboratory test with a blood sample. All tests used have a CE mark and are permitted by the regulatory body the MHRA, approved by the UK government for use.

    For the Abbott laboratory test, the specificity is 100% and sensitivity 99.7%, This is the most accurate test currently available in the UK.

    PCR Test London

    PCR tests are used to directly detect the presence of an antigen, rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. By detecting viral RNA, which will be present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present, the tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on.

    PCR gives us a good indication of who is infected. They can be isolated and get in contact with people they’ve been in touch with so they can be quarantined too, just in case. That’s the true advantage of the current major diagnostic tests, you can break that transmission chain and get a clearer picture.

    COVID-19 Test
    Can You Test For Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
    Yes, you can test for coronavirus.
    At our clinic, we offer two primary testing options:
    These are the PCR Swab Test and the Antibody Blood Test
    What is Coronavirus?
    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

    Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

    What are the main symptoms of coronavirus?
    The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
    a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
    a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
    a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
    To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have any of these symptoms. Stay at home (self-isolate) and get a test.
    What do COVID-19 tests involve?
    For swab tests: You will be swabbed at the back of your throat by our Harley Street Doctor.

    For antibody tests: Our Doctor will take a small blood sample which will be tested for COVID-19.

    How long does a COVID-19 test take?
    Once you arrive at our clinic the turn around time is approx. 15mins. From here you will be updated with your results within 24 – 48 Hours.
    Why do I have to have the test at the clinic?
    These tests are not regulated for home use. The instant testing has a higher than acceptable level of inaccuracy when conducted at home by a non-medical person. The reason for this is that the process requires drawing of blood from the finger, quick pipette drawing before clotting and then processing in a cassette with processing fluids. The outcome of the test also needs interpreting – there are sometimes faint responses which need interpreting by someone experienced looking at the test outcomes.
