Covid-19 PCR Test
Many countries now require a Fit-to-Fly certificate in addition to a certificate indicating negative result for Covid-19 to indicate that you are not infected with the COVID virus. To ensure smooth arrival at your destination and a worry-free travel experience, it is imperative to find suitable COVID testing options near you. Are you wondering, “Will I be able to find accredited COVID testing near me?”
We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly, who are on the government’s list of approved private COVID-19 testers and also part of the Test to Release scheme, in being able to provide COVID-19 PCR test along with Fit to Fly certificates. Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly have their own couriers who would collect the test kits from Chislehurst Pharmacy hence reducing chances of samples being lost or delayed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you need to get tested for work, are hoping to travel, or are attending a key event, we now offer a COVID-19 PCR Test through our pharmacy in partnership with Circular 1 Health. After purchasing the kit from the pharmacy, you can self-swab from the comfort of you own home and drop the kit back to the pharmacy to be sent off to the lab for analysis to check you don’t have COVID-19 infection at the time of testing. The test is 99% accurate** and results will be available 48-72 hours of samples being received at the lab.
The COVID-19 PCR Test is suitable for adults and children 12 years of age and over. This service is not suitable for anyone with symptoms of coronavirus, or anyone who thinks they may have COVID-19. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should follow the latest government guidelines and get a free NHS COVID-19 Test.
The COVID-19 home self-swab test costs £100 including private courier collection from the pharmacy. Home test kits are non-refundable and non-returnable.
We have arranged a private courier service between Chislehurst Pharmacy and Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly labs. As long as the kits are dropped off at the pharmacy by 2pm on weekdays and 11am on Saturdays, they will be delivered to the labs the same day. Once the Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly lab has received your swab sample, you should receive your results by 48 hours by email. Every effort will be made for results to be received in 48 hours; however we cannot guarantee this.
The Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly lab operates Monday to Sunday and this needs to be considered if you are wanting to get a “Fit to Travel” Certificate within the time frame required by an airline / country.
Our COVID-19 test kits will check if you currently have the coronavirus infection at the time of the test. The test does not check for immunity or whether you have previously been infected.
Your fit for travel certificate will be emailed to you along with your COVID-19 result.
We have partnered with Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly to deliver COVID-19 testing services to our patients and customers. Circular1 Health/Fit2Fly were welcomed onto the government approved list for private COVID-19 testing, which also makes them a trusted tester for the Test to Release scheme. This means they have met the stringent measurements set by the government with regards to private COVID-19 testing, thus allowing them to provide travellers with the Travel Test Certificates required for international travel, and the Test to Release certificates which allows the individual to reduce their quarantine time by 5 days after returning to the country.
