Covid-19 Private Antibody testing

 

The Good Practice is pleased to announce that we are able to test patients for antibodies against Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2).

This allows you to see if you have had Covid-19 in the past.

 

  • The test should be taken at least 14 days after you believe you were exposed or the onset of symptoms. 
  • A blood sample is taken from your arm in the practice and sent to a laboratory.
  • We receive the results in around 48 hours.
  • You will then receive a telephone call from a GP who will explain the results to you.
  • You will also receive a hard copy of the results.
  • There are no special requirements (i.e. fasting) when taking the test.
  • The test is only available to patients aged 18 years and over.
     
  • Please note that at the time of writing, a positive antibody test does not necessarily confirm immunity to Covid-19.

As this is a private service, there is a £100 fee for the blood draw, lab test and follow up GP consult.

If you are interested please call 0207 351 1766 or email thegoodpractice2@nhs.net to arrange an appointment.
