PHE-validated COVID-19 Test Now Available
The NHS are currently advising that those with symptoms of the COVID-19, however mild, should stay home for 7 days and self-isolate if you live alone from when your symptoms started. If you live with others you should self-isolate for 14 days from when the first person in the house became ill. There is no need to call NHS 111 to self-isolate. However, if symptoms worsen and have not improved after 14 days, contact NHS 111 online or by phone. Tests are currently only being offered by the NHS to patients who are being admitted to hospital. This leaves many people with uncertainty about the best course of action for their own health and whether they can safely interact with family, friends and colleagues.
Qured can now offer a rapid PCR RNA swab test for 2019-nCoV and provides PHE-validated COVID-19 tests delivered to your door.

A pre-test GP telephone consultation with one of our GPs to talk you through how to take a valid sample and discuss any symptoms or related questions.
Laboratory results within 3-5 working days (Mon-Fri), of receipt by lab. Please note tests sent by postal service may be subject to delay.
Once results are processed, one of our team will be in touch to discuss your results and any follow-up care required.
The test is for patients 16 years and older.
Test results are currently taking 3-5 working days to come back from our lab partner and we will call you as soon as we receive the results.
Book before 7pm to have your test couriered (within M25) or posted to you the next day. Our courier service is only available in Greater London. If you live outside of this area, the test will be posted to you first class; you will then have to return it using the pre-stamped envelope provided.
Qured’s PHE-validated COVID-19 Test package includes a telephone consultation with the doctor prior to you receiving and taking the test. The doctor will call you during the indicated booking slot to talk you through how to take the test and discuss any symptoms or related questions that you might have. After the test results have been processed, the doctor will call you to discuss your results and next steps.
The PHE-validated COVID-19 Test is accurate from the earliest pre-symptomatic stage of infection, however it will not show whether you have had the virus previously.
Our diagnostic partner shares all positive COVID-19 results with Public Health England, to contribute to national testing efforts. If the self-swab instructions are followed correctly, our test has a sensitivity (ability to correctly identify positive cases) of 98.7% and 100% specificity ( the ability to correctly identify negative cases), for a result that individuals and businesses can rely on.
