Covid-19 Ready – Health Screen
Covid-19 Ready is a screening programme to identify areas of vulnerability to the Covid-19 virus. This is a new virus and we are learning news things about it all of the time.
Initially thought to be a respiratory disease the medical evidence is showing that Covid-19 is most dangerous for people with metabolic disorders like Diabetes, Hypertension, Kidney Disease among others and Vitamin D deficiency is thought to be linked with the risk to the BAME communities.
It is important that Vitamin D deficiency is understood alongside a renal function test.
Covid-19 Ready Screening is just £495 and includes baseline of blood tests, doctors consultation and repeat testing. Click here to find out more and to book your Covid-19 Screen today.
You will be given the option of booking either a Covid-19 RT-PCR Test or a Covid-19 Antibody test.
Please carefully read the differences in these tests below and contact us if you would like further information.
The RT-PCR test is the gold standard for providing a positive or negative result for patients with a current Covid-19 infection. This is the same test used by The NHS for testing current infection.
We will pop a kit in the post to you and provide the results as soon as they are available to your email address.
If you are currently experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with a person now infected you should implement the government recommended guidelines for isolating. Please click here for symptoms and latest guidance.
A swab is used to wipe the back of the throat and nose to detect a current infection.
It is very important to follow the instructions for taking the swab. Incorrect swabbing can provide inaccurate results.
Samples should be taken from symptomatic patients between days 1-5 from onset of symptoms.
An approved PHE Antibody Test for Covid-19.
Simply a positive or negative result for antibodies to Covid-19.

Antibody test should be carried out 14 – 21 days post onset of symptoms.
This test will tell you if you have ever developed or been exposed to the Covid-19 virus and have subsequently developed antibodies. Both IgM and IgG are tested. This test uses CLIA technology and may also indicate a current infection and re-testing for Covid-19 antibodies will be offered.
Antibody test should be carried out 14 – 21 days post onset of symptoms for most reliable results
