COVID-19 TESTING is currently available for work or travel requirements. Click here for more PCR test information

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

Why do Covid tests cost so much?

Recent changes to the Health and Social Care act brought by Lord Bethell, require all healthcare professionals obtain extra accreditation to swab a nose or throat for travel purposes (the same process school children do at home). This accreditation is hugely expensive and unfortunately, unavoidable.

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.jpg

STOP PRESS - Barnstaple clinic is now open

As of last week, the Exeter Travel Clinic is now operating a satellite clinic (The Barnstaple Travel Clinic) based at 102 Boutport St. We have the use of a fabulous new clinical space, kitted out to ensure you travel safely across the globe. The clinic is staffed by myself, along with an incredibly well qualified and enthusiastic new team member, Clare. Over the last few years the Exeter Travel Clinic has seen a number of patients from North Devon, along with being a huge support for local companies and GP Practices. Now we have brought our expertise to the doorstep and really look forward to continuing supporting those living and working in North Devon.
