Coronavirus Test FAQS
  • If you need to return to work safely
  • If you need to travel and require a PCR test to show to authorities in the country you are travelling to that you are not infected with COVID19
  • If you had an episode in the past which you think was COVID19 to check your antibody levels
  • For peace of mind and reassurance

For the PCR Test, the team at Stonegate Medical will send you the results by email typically within 24 hours though results can take up to 72 hours after your sample has been analysed at our laboratory. You will get your certificate in a PDF format sent to your email address.

When you get your results depends on one of 2 things

  • Which type of test you have booked standard or express
  • Time of appointment for the test

PCR Test
Our GP will see you in our clinic to take a deep throat swab and from up your nose. The swab is then tested for the virus itself and identifies the Viral DNA. The results are available in 48 hours. This is the same PCR swab that is being used in the NHS.

Laboratory Antibody Test
We take a sample of blood from your vein and this is sent to the laboratory to be analysed. This is the only Government and Public Health England approved antibody test and uses the ABBOTT testing. The results will show whether you are positive or negative to IgG antibodies to COVID19. This will indicate past infection.

  1. Collect blood/serum/plasma sample from a finger prick sample.
  2. Add blood/serum/plasma sample to sample well.
  3. Place 2-3 drops of buffer in sample well.
  4. Read results after 15-20 minutes.

Should your PCR swab test be positive, you must immediately self-isolate to prevent spreading the virus to others. You will not be able to travel if your test becomes positive. We will also inform Public Health England of your positive result so they can monitor this novel virus and spread. The laboratories are also notifying Public Health England so that test and trace can be activated.

Covid-19 is a coronavirus which can cause illness in both humans and animals. The effect of it can vary from one person to another. Covid-19 is highly contagious and spreads very quickly from person to person through droplets produced when a person with Covid-19 coughs or sneezes. Other people can become infected by the virus by breathing in the droplets. Transmission can also occur when a person touches nearby surfaces and objects where the droplets have landed and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth.

A PCR test is a quick medical procedure that is done through a nasal and a throat swab that aims to find any traces of RNA related to the coronavirus.
If you are travelling to an area that requires proof that you are not infected with the virus, you must take the PCR test and be able to present a certificate that states that you are healthy. Most countries are now requesting proof that you are COVID-19 free and you are required to take this test.
It is recommended that you take the test 72 hours before the travelling date. The swabs are sent to our partner laboratories on the day of your test and you will receive a result with a medical certificate by midnight the following day. This is why we recommend you book your PCR test as close to the travelling date as possible.
To date, 100% of our customers that booked a PCR test with us have got on flights and reached their destination safely. All of our patients have received their results within 48 hours while all of our express patients have received their results on the same day as the test
There is no age restriction on the test and our experienced clinicians work with all age groups.

Yours and our safety are paramount at Stonegate Medical. Our clinicians will be wearing PPE when they see you. Our reception team will be wearing face masks. We request all patients to wear face masks and use alcohol gel on entry and exit. We are maintaining 1m social distancing in the waiting area and limiting the number of people waiting by only allowing people in 5 minutes prior to their appointment slot. Only those who have appointments are allowed to enter the clinic. 

Our professional GPs recommend that you should consider both the PCR swab test as well as the antibody testing. The results will outline the team members who have the virus and need to self-isolate and the team members that had it in the past. Please contact us for corporate prices if you are looking to have more than 10 employees tested.
