  • Our Tests in Comparison to Government / NHS Tests

      Tests booked through the Government website are not for recreational travel purposes and do not supply you with a fit-to-fly certificate. Unnecessary strain is being put on the government system by those attempting to book tests for travel.

      Our in-clinic tests are for travel purposes only. If you have COVID-19 symptoms you should book a test via the Government website or buy a test from our online shop.

  • What is a PCR Test?

      A PCR Test is nasal swab and throat swab test which looks for RNA related to coronavirus.

  • Why do I need a PCR test for travel?

      While travel restrictions are continuously evolving, many popular destinations now require a fit-to-fly certificate.  Providing you have a negative result, our results sheets (sent via email) are recognised as a fit-to-fly document.

  • When should I book the test?

      We have a Standard and an Express option. When using the booking calendar above you will see when your result will be sent depending on which of those two options you select when you book. Most travel authorities require the test to be taken within 72 hours of the flight although this can vary and is subject to change, so please check the government website if you are unsure of the requirements for your destination.

      We send out results via email between 4 pm and midnight.

  • Will I get a fit-to-fly certificate?

      You will receive your test results from our CQC registered lab. You can use your results sheet or email to authenticate your results when required.

      Fit to Fly Certificate

      The results will be supplied via email.

  • Can I buy tests, rather than coming to the Birmingham clinic for testing?

      Yes. You can buy the sample collection kits here. Some clients prefer to receive their test in-clinic as it is done under the supervision of our experts.

  • Is your laboratory regulated?

      Yes, the laboratory we use is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission. Certificate number: CRT1-4708702735

  • How reliable is the test?

      The test has 100% sensitivity

  • Will the test tell me if I’ve recently had the virus?

      No. A PCR test looks for current infection.

  • Where is your clinic located?

      Due to increased demand for PCR Travel Testing in Birmingham, we are pleased to inform you that we have now expanded and moved our PCR testing site to increase capacity. Therefore, any appointments from Friday 18th September 2020 will take place at the following address:

      ***UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE YOU TO ENTER THE MAIN CIBA BUILDING PREMISES. IF THIS HAPPENS, WE WILL HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO TURN YOU AWAY FROM YOUR APPOINTMENT***

      Vivo Clinic (based inside the Team Prevent building)
      BEHIND THE CIBA BUILDING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR PARK
      146 Hagley Road
      Birmingham
      B16 9NX

      Great news, we have free parking on site which we did not have previously! Once you enter the car park you need to drive straight to the bottom and the building will be just to the right of you. Please look for the “Team Prevent,” and, “Vivo Clinic,” signage. Please ensure you park within the parking bays closest to the “Team Prevent,” building.

       

      If you are travelling by bus there is a stop directly outside the car park with regular links in and out of the city centre.

      If you are travelling by train the nearest station is “Five Ways,” which is a 10-15-minute walk. Alternatively, Birmingham New Street is only a 10-minute taxi journey away.

      ***JUST TO REITERATE, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE YOU TO ENTER THE MAIN CIBA BUILDING PREMISES. IF THIS HAPPENS, WE WILL HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO TURN YOU AWAY FROM YOUR APPOINTMENT***

      We look forward to meeting with you but if there are any further questions please do not hesitate to call us on 0333 3058486.

  • What should I do if I receive a positive result?

      If you receive a positive result, this means that you are currently infected with COVID-19, and you could pose a risk to others around you. Therefore, you should self-isolate immediately, and inform those you have been in contact with in the last 7 days in case this result affects them.

      If you would like further information on what you should do if you receive a positive result, you should visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or contact the NHS on 111.

  • Which countries can I travel to?

      The countries to which you can currently travel, and their respective regulations are continuously evolving. We recommend that you visit the Government webpage which is kept up to date with the latest information and developments.

  • Test Instructions

      Your sample collection will be supervised by our trained staff who will provide full guidance. You may also wish to familiarise yourself with the sample collection procedure prior to your appointment.
