We are pleased to offer the Abbott Laboratories IgG Coronavirus antibody test. This involves taking a small blood sample and sending it for laboratory assessment. Children have the option of taking a finger prick test and this can be discussed with the doctor.
Please note that it is not a test for acute infection but aims to show if you have been previously infected with the virus. The test is most accurate any time from 21 days from the onset of symptoms. You can still attend for testing if your illness was more than 21 days ago. You can still take a test if you have not had any symptoms of the illness.
Please do not book or attend for a test if you have new symptoms of any infection – in this circumstance please book a telephone consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your options for management. Please note that we are not routinely performing PCR swab testing. If this is officially required for travel or employment purposes in asymptomatic individuals, please call to discuss your options.
