Need a private Coronavirus test?

If you suspect you might have covid-19 then getting a test is the most sensible and community conscious thing to do. But getting access to a test isn’t always the most straightforward, unless you opt for a private covid test. 

With many people experiencing difficulties getting access to a coronavirus test, or others sometimes being sent to testing centres many miles from where they live, the only way you can be guaranteed a quick private coronavirus test closer to home is to opt for testing services at a private clinic like Ghosh Medical Group.

 

When do you need to take a coronavirus test?

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus then you should get a test. The main symptoms of coronavirus include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Most people with coronavirus will have at least one of these symptoms.

If you have the symptoms, you should get a test as soon as possible, but it should usually be done within the first 8 days of having the symptoms as this is when testing is most effective.

It may be that your employer or even your travel company may have asked you to get tested, even if you have no symptoms, and this is where a private coronavirus test can be ideal. If you suspect you may have had coronavirus previously, but this was never confirmed, then an antibody blood test will be ideal. This requires a simple finger prick test and, similar to a pregnancy test, will show you results in just minutes.

Want your private covid-19 test results quick?

Sometimes speed is of the essence, and you don’t want the uncertainty hanging over you for any longer than you have to. We can help you get a quick private coronavirus test which will provide you with your results speedily so that you can have peace of mind concerning your status with coronavirus. 

Depending on which of the tests you opt for, we can have your results for you in quick time. The results of a nose/throat swab can be with you within as little as 4 hours, blood test results will be returned within 24 hours, and the small finger prick test to see whether you have developed the antibodies, having previously had and recovered from the virus, will give you results in just 10 minutes.

Need corona testing as an individual or for the workplace?

We can carry out private covid tests for individuals or multiple groups of people, such as those in the workplace. We offer in-clinic, at-home or at-work appointments, all of which are carried out in the most secure way possible, so there is little or no risk to you.

Our comprehensive coronavirus testing service provides you with local access to reliable covid testing and rapid antibody testing, whether for you or your staff, all delivered at a location of your choosing. We promise the utmost discretion when it comes to our testing services regardless of where you choose to have your test.   

For businesses, our coronavirus testing services can support you during what is now considered the ‘new normal’. We can help you meet your obligation to your employees to protect their health and wellbeing. With rapid results available, this will ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and your workplace remains Covid-safe.

If required, we can test your employees at regular intervals, or carry out private corona tests before they return to the workplace, to ensure they are free of coronavirus if they have previously been found to have had been infected. If you have employees who need to travel  then we can assist with coronavirus testing and certification to smooth entry/exit into certain countries. 

How does the testing process work? 

Get in touch with us and book your appointment. You can come to us at one of our clinics in Liverpool or Wirral. Alternatively we can come out to you at your home, workplace, or other place of your choosing - whatever suits you best.

Samples will be collected by a Ghosh Medical CQC registered healthcare professional and then sent off to testers for thorough analysis. Once we have your results, we will provide you with a complimentary telemedicine appointment to discuss your results and advise on next steps. We can provide you with any certification should you require it for returning to work or for other purposes such as travelling abroad where covid-19 flight certification might smooth your entry into certain countries.

What is COVID-19?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory tract infection caused by a newly emergent coronavirus – Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) – which was first recognised in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, in December 2019. Genetic sequencing of the virus suggests that SARS-CoV-2 is a betacoronavirus closely linked to SARS coronavirus 1.

The outbreak was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020, and has since spread globally, resulting in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. Current measures are in place globally to reduce the spread of the virus, most commonly from droplets (person-to-person) but also from infected surfaces.

Flight Certificate

We also offer travel-safe flight certificate testing, which includes our same day* express test – RT-PCR test or PCR test. It is UKAS and CQC accredited and fully approved by ALL airlines.
