How to Collect your Test to Release kit

Park at our visitor car park and make your way to reception. When entering the building please always wear a mask.

You will be able to collect your kit from the allocated area in reception, which also has the deposit box placed for returning your completed test.

Please bring with you:

  • A pen so you can complete some paperwork
  • A tissue to blow your nose before your test (if you decide to do the test in your car)

Please Note: The test involves taking a swab from both the back of the throat and the nasal passage so if you are taking the test in your car, we recommend you bring a mirror with you.

Please ensure you do not spill the contents of the sample tube as this is required for the analysis. If you think you have spilled any, please let reception know and we can get you a replacement for the test to be repeated immediately.

*  Please note that Weekends are not selectable and are not part of the 48-hours booking notice for Standard order.
