COVID-19 has brought a lot of uncertainty to all of us and had a huge impact on the way we interact. At Egerton Pharmacy we want to be able to bring back some control and offer COVID-19 testing and certification at our Islington location.
TWO different types of COVID-19 tests available
Do you want to test for antibodies so that you can get peace of mind or answer those questions you've been asking yourself about your experience with Coronavirus? Perhaps you need a PCR test to attend an event or to get the all-clear after a holiday? We can perform both of these tests, along with antigen testing too. Find out more about each test below. We also provide travel vaccinations, treatments for allergy symptoms and general health consultations.
The quickest type of COVID-19 test available at Egerton Pharmacy is the antigen test., used to determine if you currently have COVID. Some countries accept this test as 'fit-to-fly' certification.
The antigen test is also ideal if you want to safely see friends and family or prove your COVID-19 status for work purposes.
To get tested you will need to book an appointment at our Islington pharmacy. The pharmacist on duty will carry out the test by taking a nasal swab and then conducting the antigen test.
24- 36 hours results £69 Same day results £99.00
The PCR test is a lab-based test to reliably assess the presence of COVID-19 infection. Once swabbed, bring the sample back to us. We will arrange collection to the lab. Results are then emailed within 24 - 36 hours from dropping of the sample.
This test is ideal for fit to fly certification and can also be used to prove a negative result if it has been requested for entry into a venue.
Testing is available Monday to Friday.
We also offer day 2 and day 8 PCR tests for international arrivals from red list countries and unvaccinated travellers at £79.00 each.
A unique PLF booking reference code is issued at the time of purchase that is used on your Passenger Locator Form. On your return simply drop off your sample on the day that you wish to be tested and the results are issued the following day. We can arrange for an express service to the lab, where results can be emailed across within the same day for £119.
