Private COVID-19 Coronavirus Testing

DocTap has partnered with one of the leading private laboratories in UK to offer both PCR swab tests (£99, to detect a current infection) and Abbott IgG antibody blood tests (£49, to confirm a previous infection). Antibody tests require a blood sample which will be taken by your doctor in the clinic.  The PCR test is a postal self collection test kit. Samples from both tests are analysed by professional scientists at our partner laboratory in London.

If you have any concerns about COVID-19 or wish to arrange a test, simply book a consultation with one of our experienced UK accredited GPs. Your doctor will answer any questions you may have, ensure that you only have an appropriate test and advise you on the most effective way to collect your sample.

Results are typically available within 1-2 working days (antibody) or 4-5 working days (PCR) of receipt at the lab. All results are analysed by one of our doctors who will provide you with a report advising what the results mean together with any appropriate next steps. Telephone follow up consultations are available if desired at a discounted rate of £29.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Abbott IgG Antibody Tests (£49)

Antibody tests can detect if you have had the infection in the past.  Your symptoms must be have fully cleared up for at least 14 days before we can carry out this test.

Your doctor will take a blood sample during your consultation where it will be sent to our partner Laboratory in London for analysis. They have demonstrated a specificity of 100% and sensitivity of 97.5%. You will typically receive your results within 2-3 working days.

A positive test result confirms that you have had COVID-19 in the past. It is not yet known whether the presence of antibodies confers immunity and if so, for how long. A negative test means that there are no detectable antibodies in your blood sample. This could be because you have not been infected, the infection was very mild or that your immune system had not produced antibodies to the virus at the time of testing.

To arrange a COVID-19 antibody test please book a clinic appointment now.
