The Exeter Travel Clinic (and our Barnstaple site) remain open, but currently not at weekends. Any specific test enquiries should be emailed:

Due to regulatory changes, we are now using a laboratory based in London. To try and ensure a 72-hour turn-around time we use Royal Mail Guaranteed 9am delivery. We will track the parcel to confirm progress and delivery during working hours. As a result of postal times, tests for those travelling on Tuesdays and Wednesdays may not be back in time

Please note: we are not part of either the test-to-release scheme, or the day 2 and 8 return home scheme,c_crop,w_1080,q_80,g_center,g_faces/misc/default-featured.jpgHuman Papilloma Virus (Gardasil) icon
