In-Clinic PCR Test to Release at our Liverpool Clinic
Use the button above to select a date and book your appointment.
When travelling to England, arrivals from red and amber list countries must go into a mandatory quarantine for ten days upon entry.
For the amber list country returnees, the quarantine period can be cut down to five days by opting into the Test to Release scheme. This scheme applies to travellers who are self-isolating in England only, and it is completely voluntary.
Travellers taking part may book a COVID-19 PCR test, and if they receive a negative test result, they may stop self-isolating.
Please be advised: you can only take a PCR test five days after your arrival in England.
The post-return quarantine is no longer mandatory for fully vaccinated amber list country returnees.
When will I receive my results?
At our Liverpool clinic, we offer a next-day results service for £125 as well as a same-day service for £165.
We will deliver the results via email.

Can I travel to your Liverpool clinic if I am self-isolating?
You can go to the clinic with a valid pre-booked test appointment. However, you must strictly limit your travel to going from your quarantine location to the test site only.
In case you are symptomatic or suspect you may be infected, you will have to take an at-home test.
How does the Test to Release PCR test work?
The PCR testing is a very straightforward process. A member of our clinical team will collect a swab sample from your nose and throat. The samples will then be tested at our laboratory.
What if I test negative?
A negative test result means you can stop quarantining.
What if I test positive?
If your result comes positive, you have to quarantine for ten days, but this time, your isolation period starts from the day after your test date.
What if my test result is inconclusive?
You must continue self-isolating until you take another test with a conclusive negative result.
Can I take part in the scheme after I arrive in England?
Sadly, you will not be able to. The reason is that you must provide details of your pre-booked test appointment on your passenger locator form before your journey.
Can I take part in the scheme if I am travelling from a country on the travel ban red list?
International arrivals from a ‘red list’ country are not permitted to take part in the Test to Release scheme.
If you are coming from or have been through a ‘red list’ country, you are legally bound to self-isolate for ten days.
