Day 2 and Day 8 PCR Tests Derby
Book your Day 2 and Day PCR 8 tests at our Derby Clinic.
Alternatively, you can purchase a Day 2 & Day PCR Testing package to be delivered to the location where you are self-isolating.
A ten-day quarantine period is mandatory for everyone returning from the amber list and red list countries. They are also required to take PCR tests on Day 2 and Day 8. The arrival date is Day 0.
When returning from amber list countries, fully vaccinated passengers and children under 18 years are exempt from the quarantine and Day 8 PCR tests.
Everyone else must book and pay for the tests before their return to the UK. The Day 2 and Day 8 test appointment details must be entered in the passenger locator form before beginning travel back to the UK. Failure to do this will result in fines and penalties.
What should I do on my arrival in England?
As soon as you enter England, you must begin your quarantine. Amber list country returnees must quarantine at home, while returnees from red list countries must self-isolate in a hotel. Hotel quarantine must be pre-arranged via the government’s website.
Can I come to your Derby clinic while I am self-isolating?
Yes. Per government guideline, travelling in order for one to attend a PCR test appointment is permitted even during their quarantine period.
However, please take our at-home tests if you start to show symptoms.
Where is the clinic located?

Do I need to bring anything with me for the test?
When you attend your test appointment at our clinic, we will need to see a valid passport.

We can book or purchase from the following options according to what may be most convenient for you:
Will you provide a reference number to include in my passenger locator form?
Yes. Once you have finished booking your tests with us, you will be sent a unique reference number (starting VIVOC) which you can then enter into your pre-flight passenger locator form.
How will I receive my test results?
We deliver all PCR test results via email.
When will I receive my results?
Typically, our results do not take more than 24 hours to be ready and delivered. However, we have experienced a few rare instances where the testing and results process took longer. Even if that happens, results will still be delivered within 72 hours.
Results for appointments taking place after 5 pm normally requires up to 48 hours to be sent. This is due to the laboratory receiving the day’s samples after 5 pm the following day.
What should I do if I test positive?
If either of your tests come back positive, your ten-day quarantine resets starting from one day after you had taken the test. The previous time you had spent in self-isolation will no longer count.
What should I do if I test negative?
You must simply continue to quarantine until the ten days have been completed. There will be no extensions nor resets.
