Your booking reference number will be MAYFI0 followed by your invoice number (sent on the receipt provided).

If you test positive for either Day 2 or Day 8 test you must quarantine for a further 10 days from the day you took the test – you will receive further advice alongside your test results. Positive day 2 tests are sent for genomic sequencing to check the strain of the virus the patient is carrying. If your test shows that you have a variant of coronavirus known as a ‘variant of concern’, you will get a further call and your contacts will be asked to be tested.

  • The biggest challenge in getting a fast Day 8 result will be from the postal timeline from sending your sample back to the laboratory in Cambridge.
  • Tests will be analysed in ~24 hours, once they reach the lab. If your Day 8 falls on a Saturday and Sunday, using the postal service your sample will typically not arrive until Tuesday, so you should not expect a result until Wednesday.
  • For faster Day 8 results, consider using a direct courier or alternative postal service

Once you’ve quarantined for 10 days and received a negative result to both your day 2 and day 8 tests, you may leave the place where you’re quarantining. The only way to shorten this period, is by taking a 'Test To Release' test on or after Day 5

Return your Test To Release kit to us on Day 5 (where Day 0 is the day you arrive back into the UK) before 3PM, and upon receipt of a negative result you can exit travel isolation / quarantine. You are still required to submit the Day 8 test.

Day 2 and Day 8 samples should be sent by Royal Mail using the included postage paid envelopes.

Day 5 same day test to release samples should be returned following the included instructions

We use a number of labs, all of whom are UKAS registered or UKAS accredited. If you require a UKAS accredited lab, you will need to book an appointment with one of our healthcare professionals and request this at the time of the appointment.

For post, your kit will be sent next working day using Royal Mail's Tracked24 service. Please allow 1-2 days for delivery from this point. Alternatively, you can collect from Mayfield Clinic Oxford.

Whilst we aim to keep the Mayfield Clinic website updated, for the latest information please see the .gov website.
