We are now able to offer a COVID-19 rapid testing service, using a CE marked coronavirus antigen test. The antigen kit will identify current COVID-19 infection.
The rapid antigen test returns results in 15-minutes from the point of sample collection, with relative sensitivity 90.2%, relative specificity 100%, accuracy 97.6%. It is not suitable for travel certification.
Please note, we advise that in the event of a positive antigen result, the patient should take a confirmatory RT-PCR test, either via Mayfield Clinic or the NHS testing service. Positive results will be reported to PHE.
