COVID-19 -PCR | The Doctors Laboratory (tdlpathology.com)
Covid-19 IgG Antibody Test. - £75.00
COVID-19 Antibody | The Doctors Laboratory (tdlpathology.com)
The samples are taken in the surgery and then sent for testing by The Doctors Laboratory. Results are typically received 3-5 working days from when the sample was taken.
If you require one of these tests please book an appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants. Please note that payment will need to be taken at the time of booking either at the counter or over the phone. Payments can be made by cash, card of cheque.
