We are still open!
Covid-19 is spreading quickly, and we understand the uncertainty and levels of anxiety that are currently being experienced on a global level. In light of this, we are now offering an at-home Covid-19 test; the only test on the market to identify the 2019-nCoV strain and differentiate between other variants with the same symptoms.
LycaHealth is offering the COVID-19 testing kit at £219 per person. This package includes:
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?
If your test comes back as positive, you must immediately self-isolate to prevent spreading the virus to others, and you should contact 111 to find out what to do next.
Please note, these tests are approved by Public Health England and are fully compliant with government guidelines
Testing kits are sent to you by post and are simple to use. You simply take a swab from your nose and back of the throat following the instructions provided. You send your swabs back to our laboratory for analysis, and we will provide you with your results in 4-5 working days.
The two most common symptoms associated with coronavirus are:
Other symptoms of COVID-19 may include tiredness, loss of sense of smell and taste, headaches and other bodily aches and pains. Less common symptoms may also include a runny nose, sore throat, and diarrhoea.
Some people may be asymptomatic, meaning that they display no symptoms, however, this doesn’t mean they cannot pass the virus onto others. Using our COVID-19 test will enable you to check whether or not you have COVID-19, or are suffering from a different illness.
The first reported cases were in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 which is why it is sometimes referred to as the ‘Wuhan virus’.
The test is simple and quick to do, and you will receive everything you need to carry out the test within the kit; including step by step instructions. The test will involve you taking a nasal and throat swab, as well as scraping inside the nose and at the back of the throat.
Results from the laboratory will be available between 4 and 5 working days, however it is important to note that whilst we will do everything we can to get your test results as soon as possible, exact turnaround times cannot be guaranteed.
You will receive an email with your results once they are available and advice from one of our doctors if your test is positive.
Unfortunately not. All test kits will be sent to the patient’s home address, this is to protect the patients and our employees at LycaHealth.
If your test comes back as positive, you must immediately self-isolate to prevent spreading the virus to others. However, if your condition worsens you should contact 111 for further advice.
