What tests are available?

PCR testing - this will help determine if you have active disease on the day of the test. It does not tell you if you have previously been exposed to the virus in recent weeks or months and does not produce any confirmation of having Antibodies to the virus.

It involves the insertion of a swab into the nose and throat which many people will have seen in the media in recent months. This takes place while you sit in your car with the window down and the engine switched off. One of our trained staff members will approach the car and explain the process to you and there is no need to leave the vehicle at any stage unless you need other blood tests. The swab process takes less than a minute and while it shouldn’t be sore it can be a little uncomfortable.

Results are available in around 24 hrs and prices start at £199. This price includes a telephone consultation with one of our specialist GP’s and an official lab report confirming your status.

Antibody testing - this will help determine if you have been exposed to the virus in recent weeks or months. It cannot accurately determine if you have “active” disease unless until you are around 1 week post exposure to the virus.  For this reason it is not recommended for anyone needing to establish if they are infected on the day of the test.

A blood sample is taken from your arm or the back of your hand before being sent to a specialist laboratory.

The results take approximately 2-3 days to be returned to the hospital and prices start at £199.  This price includes a telephone consultation with one of our specialist GP’s and an official lab report confirming your status.

Please note that pre booking is essential for both tests and testing is available Monday to Friday.

Current government guidance advises that if you have any of the symptoms of Covid19, a negative PCR test will not automatically mean you can return to work. It also advises against re-testing of positive individuals over several weeks as they may still test positive several for several weeks after the initial exposure. We recommend adhering to government guidance in conjunction with any advice given by our medical practitioners.

Patient Testimonials

"I was in your facility yesterday for a day procedure (operation on my left arm). I wanted to write and express how impressed I was with the facilities and more importantly the staff on the Ward.

Everyone was excellent, and I mean excellent, i don't normally write congratulatory e-mails so this is high praise in my view. The Senior nurse was excellent, as was the Theatre nurse and the anaesthetist. Even the assistants that helped with catering and other duties. All came together to form a great impression of the establishment." Jason Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Kingsbridge Patient
"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips, Kingsbridge Patient
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
