We believe in affordable testing for everyone

We believe that individuals, families and business should have affordable access to coronavirus testing as part of their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also strongly believe in our responsibility to provide high-quality, transparent and evidence-based information about testing to help people make informed and safe choices.

We're advocates for responsible medical testing and have the following guiding principles:

Indication: We will give clear information on who a test is recommended for and why it is recommended.

Evidence: All the tests we offer are routinely used by doctors in the UK and have appropriate regulatory approval.

Necessity: We will never recommend that tests are performed more often than is necessary.

Quality: We only partner with UKAS accredited laboratories for our testing and currently use The Doctors Laboratory, the largest independent provider of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK.

Interpretation: We will always provide the information you need to interpret your results and take appropriate action.
