Important Notice for all tests

If you wish to arrange for large numbers of your staff to receive tests, corporate discount rates can be arranged. Please note that we can only accept patients in our premises who are asymptomatic and are not suspected to have COVID-19.All patients are required to wear a facemask and we will need to take their temperature upon arrival. The sample collection takes place in our outpatient centre at 25 Harley Street. This centre is quiet, discrete and our teams have maintained the highest level of sanitation and infection control.


We aim to report results within 2 days, however at times results are inconclusive and need to be repeated which affects the turn-around-time of reports. It is your responsibility to check the test requirements for entry to a country. We won’t be liable for incorrectly chosen tests or delayed reports.

Great experience with the lovely staff at this clinic. Am always fearful of blood tests, but quite honestly the nurses were the best I’ve come across. Super friendly, accommodating and my blood test was over in no time. 100% recommend.
