5. Your Test Results

5.1. For the purposes of this service a ‘result’ is deemed to be:

  • Positive – Covid-19 has been detected in the sample at the time of the sample.
  • Negative – Covid-19 has not been detected at the time of the sample.
  • Inconclusive – Neither a positive nor a negative result has been generated, but instead, an inconclusive result has been produced. Your sample must be re-run as a positive or negative result could not be provided during the first instance.

Please be advised that any of the above outcomes (positive, negative or inconclusive) are deemed to be a ‘result’, and therefore, a refund will not be issued.

5.2. We will take reasonable steps to email, text or upload onto our app that your test results and certificates are available on your patient profile within the agreed timescale as set out on our website.  It is your responsibility to contact us promptly if you have not received notification of your results within the expected period. We take no responsibility for early or late test results other than as set out in the Refunds and Cancellations section below.

5.3. You acknowledge that, as with any medical test, 100% accuracy of our tests cannot be guaranteed. For example, there is always a risk of either a “false positive” or a “false negative” test result. Also, there is a risk that the test will not cover a new Covid-19 variant. Accordingly, we are not legally responsible for incorrect test results and you rely on the test results at your own risk.

5.4. We do not take any responsibility or offer any refunds for inconclusive or void test results, including void results due to failure of the test kit that we provide.  We may in our discretion offer replacement tests in these cases.

5.5. You acknowledge that in the event that your Covid-19 test has a positive result then, as is required by law pursuant to the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 and the Health Protection (Notification) Regulations 2010, your test result and personal details, which may include your name, date of birth, gender, home address, telephone number, NHS number, occupation, place of work, ethnicity and the fact that you have tested positive for COVID 19 must be communicated to Public Health England, either directly or by any laboratory that we subcontract.

5.6. You understand that we or any laboratory that we subcontract will be unable to erase your test results, which are required as evidence of clinical practice.

5.7. If your test is processed by a subcontracted laboratory you understand that you have authorised us to order your test on your behalf, and we will be responsible for receiving your results and communicating them to you.

5.8. You understand that your Covid-19 test is to be used for screening purposes only as a convenient and confidential way of getting tested quickly for a Covid-19 infection. The results are not intended to replace medical advice, nor should they be used as a full diagnosis, or to prescribe medication without consulting an appropriate medical professional. You are advised to seek medical advice from your GP if medical advice is required following a positive test.

6. Refunds, Cancellations, Amendments and Late Shows

6.1. All bookings/orders made by you are final. We accept no responsibility for bookings made in error by you or persons on your behalf and no refunds will be administered in the event of your error.

We will however, if an appointment is missed, or a late show, try to accommodate any bookings and it is at the sole discretion of the clinic that this is possible.

If you cancel your appointment or your appointment can not go ahead due to changes in regulations, government policies or changes to airline policies or anything out of our control, a refund will not be possible as our services are non-refundable.

Please be advised that we cannot be held responsible for any financial losses that you may incur as a result of using any of our services, including PCR Travel Testing, and we cannot be held responsible if we have not delivered your result within the given time frames even if there has been human error in obtaining that result. In these cases, our liability to you will be limited to the value of the contract/order, which is the cost of the test you have purchased. If we are not able to deliver the service once a swab has been taken and are in breach of this contract, we will only be responsible for the value of the contract, which is the price of the test.
