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:

Our covid-19 PCR testing is undertaken by trained, medical professionals and processed by a local laboratory.

Our samples are couriered to the laboratory each day. The samples are then processed and the results are normally back by midnight of the following day. If the results come back after working hours, they will be emailed to you on the morning of the next working day.

Why do Covid tests cost so much?

All healthcare professionals require extra certification to provide PCR testing services. 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.jpgMeningitis ACWY icon
