COVID-19 has made a huge impact on the way that we live, interact and travel. 2020 brought life to a massive halt, with millions of people worldwide having to isolate and hundreds of countries going into lockdown. A year later and things are beginning to look somewhat brighter with lockdowns being lifted, international borders opening and of course the rapid vaccination process . Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the importance of reliable, accessible testing to screen for the Coronavirus disease has become increasingly apparent and that is why we at Kings Pharmacy are now offering COVID-19 PCR testing in Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
What we offer
Our range of Covid tests are not limited. We provide PCR Testing, Free Rapid Covid Tests, as well as distribute the NHS Free Lateral Flow Tests. We now offer Rapid Antigen Fit to Fly tests to help you have everything you need for your travels abroad.
PCR Testing & Fit to Fly Certificates
Our COVID-19 PCR Testing will tell you if you are infected with coronavirus when taking your sample. It will test for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Your results will be available online within 24 hours from the date the sample reaches the lab. Fit to Fly travel certificates are included.
Simply visit us in-store and purchase a self-test kit to do from the comfort of your own home. Register your kit online and take a sample using the simple instructions. Post the sample using the provided guaranteed next day postage supplied. Your results should be available in your online account within 24 hours of the sample reaching the laboratory.
Call us on 0121 433 3072 to find out more about our service and get COVID-19 Testing in Birmingham.
PLEASE NOTE: results are available 24hrs after they receive the sample at the lab. Taking next day postage into account the process would probably be 48hrs (or 72hrs if there is a delay in the post)
