Covid-19 PCR, Lateral Flow and Antibody. Fit to fly Test for Travellers

 

PCR testing for travel.

We now offer PCR testing with certificates for fit to travel (from our partner Laboratory).

Our service includes:

Taking the swab and transporting it to the laboratory for processing.  An appointment before 9:00am ensures a result for the same day after 9am is the following day.  The cost of the service is £150.00.

Lateral flow (antigen) testing, is sufficient for some countries and is not as accurate as PCR testing.  This is a quick test with results in 30minutes.  It can also be used instead of PCR to return to work following isolation.  This service costs £30.00

Some countries also require IgM antibody testing. We can also provide this service at an extra cost of £25.00 for finger prick testing or £50 for intravenous testing with a certificate.  

Please message us through the contact us page on our website to arrange an appointment.

TEST TO RELEASE

We provide PCR testing for day 5 release, after entering the UK.  We can send a kit to you for you to send to the laboratory, or you can come to the pharmacy for testing.  A test before 9am, will get a result by 8pm that day, after 9am will be the following day.  The cost is £150.00.

We currently are NOT NHS day 2 and day 8 testing. 

 

TRAVELLING TO CHINA

SORRY WE ARE CURRENTLY RECEIVING A HIGH VOLUME OF E-MAILS AND PHONE CALLS FOR APPOINTMENTS.  We are finding it very difficult to respond to everybody.

If you need an appointment for testing NEXT WEEK upto 26th June.  And you have not received an e-mail appointment.  Please e-mail the pharmacy now, and we will get back to you, we are also running a clinic between 6pm and 7pm each day this week and next you can just come at 6pm and you WILL be tested.

Sorry our new appointment system has not yet gone LIVE, we are hoping this will be before the end of this week, please be patient with us. You will be able to book an appointment yourself via this website.  Please do not contact the pharmacy. You will be able to book as soon as it is up and running, at a time of your choosing. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Rachel and Faz.

You will need both the PCR and IgM intravenous test from the same site and at the same time which we can offer, within 48 hours of travel. Our tests have been approved by the Chinese embassy, but embassy requirements change frequently, and we advise you keep updated with the current rules.

We will do the testing, and the results, are provided on two documents. One for the PCR test from our partner accredited laboratory and one for the IV IgM test provided by us, you must then apply for the necessary documents yourself.  It is your responsibility to apply for these documents (Green Code).

If you need the test result on the same day (by 8pm) you must make an appointment before 9am.  If you make the appointment after 9am, the result will be available the following day.  If you struggle to travel to Manchester before 9am, in the morning, the test can be taken the day before, but the result would still be 8pm the following day, so long as the test is taken 48 hours before travel.  Please take into account that the laboratory is closed on a Sunday when booking your flight.

YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OTHERWISE WE CANNOT GUARANTEE A  TEST WHEN YOU NEED IT.

Please email the pharmacy using the contact us on our website, or you can e-mail us directly on info@windmillpharmacy.co.uk with the date and time you wish to make the appointment. We are currently recieving a high volume of enquiries, so please give us time to respond.  If you have not had a response within 5 days please resend your e-mail.  If you need a test booking urgently please write URGENT in the subject area of the e-mail.

Please do not phone the pharmacy as we need to keep our lines open for our prescription customers.
