These Supplemental Terms and Conditions for Covid-19 are in addition to our general Terms and Conditions. In the event of any inconsistency between our general Terms and Conditions and these Supplemental Terms and Conditions, these Supplemental Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
1. What these terms cover.
These terms cover any testing services or test kits supplied in relation to Covid-19, including but not limited to Covid-19 PCR tests, antigen tests and antibody tests.
2. Our Website.
We make reasonable efforts to ensure that the content on our site is complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We do not, however, make any representation, warranties or guarantees (whether expressed or implied) that the content on our site constitutes advice on which you should rely. We recommend you to take professional or specialist advice before taking any action relating to the planning or delivery of your diagnosis, treatment or care.
3. Your Order
3.1. You promise that all information that you supply to us in connection with your order is accurate and not misleading and that you will tell us if there are any important changes. We take no responsibility for incorrect information on any forms, certificates or results notifications if that information has been supplied by you.
3.2. We may offer discount codes from time to time. Such codes may only be applied to purchases made through the account in respect of which the discount code was offered and registered and are not transferable or redeemable for cash. Unless otherwise stated: codes (a) are only available for future new orders placed online; (b) cannot be used retrospectively; (c) can only be redeemed once per customer; and (d) may expire at any time at our discretion. You cannot use more than one discount code per transaction unless we state otherwise; if we do so, the order in which the codes are to be applied shall be in our sole discretion.
3.3. We reserve the right to reject any discount code if we consider that it is being used in breach of these terms. Discount codes are subject to any additional specific terms and conditions which are specified at the point of issue. We reserve the right to discontinue or otherwise modify any discount codes at any time without prior notice.
4. Delivery and Administration of Test Kits
4.1. Delivery is only to the postcodes or other locations mentioned on our site and is otherwise subject to any restrictions we have explained.
4.2. We aim to send you the test kit so that it arrives during the time slot we have specified. We aren’t responsible for delays in delivery (a) if due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control and where we could not have taken reasonable steps to deal with the delay or (b) if you haven’t given us adequate delivery instructions.
4.3. For courier or practitioner administered bookings, it is your responsibility to ensure that you and the other people for whom you book tests are all present at your specified location during the time slot and in a position to promptly administer the tests. The courier is entitled to leave without the completed kits if within 30 minutes of the courier’s delivery of the test there is either no answer or you have failed to administer the tests and to return the completed kits to the courier. In this case you may arrange to return your tests to the lab at your own cost.
4.4. If you are collecting your own sample, it is your responsibility to follow carefully any written and video instructions which we provide to you. We take no responsibility for any test failure due to incorrect or insufficient sample.
5. Test Results
5.1. We will take reasonable steps to email or text you that your test results and certificates are available on your patient profile within the agreed timescale as set out on our website. It is your responsibility to contact us promptly if you have not received notification of your results within the expected period. We take no responsibility for early or late test results other than as set out in the Refunds and Cancellations section below.
5.2. You acknowledge that, as with any medical test, 100% accuracy of our tests cannot be guaranteed. For example, there is always a risk of either a “false positive” or a “false negative” test result. Also, there is a risk that the test will not cover a new Covid-19 variant. Accordingly, we are not legally responsible for incorrect test results and you rely on the test results at your own risk.
5.3. We do not take any responsibility or offer any refunds for inconclusive or void test results, including void results due to failure of the test kit that we provide. We may in our discretion offer replacement tests in these cases.
5.4. You acknowledge that in the event that your Covid-19 test has a positive result then, as is required by law pursuant to the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 and the Health Protection (Notification) Regulations 2010, your test result and personal details, which may include your name, date of birth, gender, home address, telephone number, NHS number, occupation, place of work, ethnicity and the fact that you have tested positive for COVID 19 must be communicated to Public Health England, either directly or by any laboratory that we subcontract.
5.5. You understand that we or any laboratory that we subcontract will be unable to erase your test results, which are required as evidence of clinical practice.
5.6. If your test is processed by a subcontracted laboratory you understand that you have authorised us to order your test on your behalf, and we will be responsible for receiving your results and communicating them to you.
5.7. You understand that your Covid-19 test is to be used for screening purposes only as a convenient and confidential way of getting tested quickly for a Covid-19 infection. The results are not intended to replace medical advice, nor should they be used as a full diagnosis, or to prescribe medication without consulting an appropriate medical professional. You may book a free consultation with a Qured GP if medical advice is required following a positive test.
6. Refunds and Cancellations
6.1. You may cancel your order by contacting us by phone or, if phone is not available, email email@example.com. We offer a full refund if your order is cancelled before the following deadlines: (i) courier bookings may be cancelled up to 16:30 the day before delivery, (ii) if you have ordered tests by post for Day 2 and Day 8 international arrivals, you may cancel your test bundle up to the day before your scheduled arrival date, or (iii) if you ordered Day 5 Test to Release by post, you may cancel your test up to two days before your test date, or three days after your arrival date.
6.2. For all tests not cancelled in accordance with 6.1 above, you may cancel your test within 14 days of purchase and we offer a refund minus a 25% administration and restocking charge. For lateral flow tests administered by remote consultation, you can retain your test kit for your own personal use. For PCR tests, please return your unused test kit to:
Qured 4th Floor West, 22-25 Eastcastle Street London W1W 8DF Attn: Returns
6.3. Refunds for PCR tests will be issued only for returned tests which are unopened, undamaged and unmarked and returns shipping is at your own expense. Please include a note in your package of your name and order number, so we can issue you the refund. Do not write anything on the test box.
6.4. We take no responsibility and offer no refunds for failures or delays in delivery of the test kits to you or your return of test kits to the lab, if caused by any service provider we have contracted for delivery including but not limited to Royal Mail, DX Group, DPD Group or Gophr couriers.
6.5. If you have returned your sample to the lab for a PCR test, but a result has not been produced within the times listed below since the sample’s point of arrival at the lab, you are entitled to a following refund, if you do not wish to accept a replacement kit:
6.5.1. For results received more than 48 hours after receipt by the lab, a refund of 50%; or 6.5.2. For results received more than 72 hours after receipt by the lab, a refund of 100%.
7. Tests for Travel
7.1. It is your sole responsibility to determine what Covid-19 test you need for your travel destination, and when you need to take your test. Any information we may provide in this regard to you over the phone, in writing or on our website is purely advisory and we take no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of such information.
7.2. You acknowledge that you have made your own independent decision to travel during the Covid-19 pandemic and you are taking the risk that your travel plans may become delayed, cancelled or disrupted if you are not able to produce Covid-19 test results in a timely manner, or in the form required by your destination country. You are strongly advised to take out travel insurance to cover such risk.
7.3. Subject to our Refunds and Cancellations policy above, we accept no responsibility or liability for any costs arising from any delay, disruption or cancellation of your travel plans directly or indirectly caused by the requirement to produce a negative Covid-19 test result or travel certificate, even if that delay was caused by us, our delivery service or any laboratory we may subcontract for testing.
8. Tests Administered via Remote Consultation
8.1. You may reschedule your appointment at any time up to 24 hours prior to the appointment time you have booked. Any later requests to reschedule an appointment may be rescheduled at our sole discretion.
8.2. You are responsible for prompt attendance of your video consultation appointment at the time you have booked. If you fail to attend a scheduled appointment, we may cancel your appointment without refund or may reschedule a new appointment at our sole discretion.
8.3. You are responsible to ensure that you have a sufficient internet connection and sufficient equipment (laptop or phone) with high quality camera, to effectively attend the video consultation and process test results. We take no responsibility for failure to complete the video consultation due to above factors.
8.4. To enable us to perform the test diagnosis we may require you to produce and send or upload photos or videos of completed tests and identification documentation. You are responsible to ensure that any such photos or videos are in focus and of sufficient quality, contain the information required and are delivered in the time frame specified in our instructions. We reserve the right to reject any media not meeting the above requirements and we take no responsibility for any failure to produce test results in these circumstances.
