Should you prefer a Covid-19 test which is analysed in a laboratory then any of our GPs can take this for you. We offer 2 laboratory tests, one to check for antibodies from previous infection, and one to check for the presence of antibodies in response to the Covid-19 vaccine. Please select Laboratory Antibody Test on the booking page. The GP consultation fee is payable on booking (typically £59) and the test itself (£49) will be payable in the consultation once you have discussed it with the doctor. Antibody tests check whether you have had the virus in the past, NOT whether you are currently infected. We can only do antibody tests 14+ days after all your symptoms have cleared up.
All tests are booked online here. Simply select Covid-19 Coronavirus Test / Fit to Fly. Then choose the type of test which you require and it will show you all the clinic locations and times you can book
Should you require multiple tests for your trip then please book them all individually.
Please visit the booking page for a full list of tests, prices and availability.
We charge extra for changing the appointment date/time/location as our prices vary depending on peak times. We can refund in full so long as you have not yet taken the test, but unable to make changes or refunds after you have taken the test. To change or cancel your test please log into your DocTap account.
Simply book a test for the first member of your party. Then repeat the process for another test, but on the payment screen enter the details of the second person. Repeat for any other members of your party.
If you have accidentally booked multiple tests for the same person then don't worry, you will receive an automated email checking that this is what you wanted. To make a change simply reply to the email with the second person's details. Please ensure we have the correct details before you take your test.

If you require this please let us know once you have received your results. Please allow an additional 24 hours to arrange printing and signing of your certificate.

DocTap have selected the Acon Covid-19 antigen (lateral flow) test. This is available from £24 and is a UK Public Health England (UKHSA) approved antigen test with a sensitivity of 97.1% and a specificity of 99.5% compared with PCR.
