PCR and RAPID ANTIGEN SWAB TEST RESULTS

PCR TEST RESULTS – If you have had the fast track service, then you are guaranteed to have your results emailed to you the following day. They are normally sent to us from the laboratory by lunchtime, but please be prepared for the results to be emailed to you early afternoon as we may have many people to email.

If you have had the regular PCR swab test service, then you may receive your results the following late afternoon/evening, but this is not guaranteed and you could receive the results the morning after that. If we call day 1 the test day, then you may get the results late on day 2, but it may be the morning of day 3 before lunchtime. ( Please note, if your test has to be re-run by the laboratory because of an inconclusive first result, then this will delay you receiving your final result and it could be sent early afternoon on day 3)

If you have a test on a Friday, we normally receive the results from the laboratory Saturday evening, but the worst case is Sunday morning.
