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: Enquiries@exetertravelclinic.co.uk

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
