PCR TESTS

At Stperters Pharmacy, we offer a convenient private Covid-19 RT-PCR testing service with a fit-to-travel certificate.. We use a COURIER  service and that leaves out the risk of using a postal service offered by others. 

Green list countries and territories;

From 17 May, if you are returning from countries on the green list you will not need to isolate or quarantine on your return. However, you will still need to take a PCR test on or before Day 2 after you have arrived in England.

   You will receive your booking reference number once your order is placed. 

For travelers arriving from Green list countries, simply take the test in the comfort of your own home and send it to the lab. It should be returned in the pre-paid secure packaging to our partner lab using Royal Mail tracked 24 hour delivery.

AMBER LIST COUNTRIES AND TERRITORIES

 

Day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 PCR testing bundle for international arrivals into the UK from amber list.

All international arrivals from Amber list countries are required to take a test on or before day 2 (of their quarantine period), for variant surveillance, and a test on or after day 8 (of their quarantine period). If you arrive from a country on amber list, you can isolate at home.

The Covid-19 PCR test is designed to determine if you are currently infected with Covid-19. Most countries are now asking for a negative PCR test (fit-for-travel).  This test involves taking a swab sample and sending the sample to the lab for investigations. The results are emailed to you with a certificate.
