London PCR & IgM test, quick results

Hi,

I need to do this test prior leaving for China as operating crew.
Where I live ( not the UK ), this is readily available with results in a matter of hours but I can't seem to find anywhere the same.

Does anybody have any recommendations ? The test and the results are valid for 48h prior departure so I m ideally looking for a place who can do that in 12h ( and perhaps not charge 500 for it ).

Thank you.

they have a clinic in Guildford - IgM results in 10 minutes, PCR in less than 24 hrs. Used them several times.

I've used Global Health Travel clinic, it depends on which method they use as to when you'll get your results. The swap up the nose and around the back of throat = 12-24 hours. The saliva test they have to send off to a lab = in the early hours of the next day. Both PCR tests.
I've also used the Fleet Street Clinic in London, F**k Off expensive (495) but if you're willing to pay you'll get your results same day, as in 2 to 6 hours later.

Yeah I had seen Fleet Street Clinic... Seemed like a rip off.

I once had the results of a PCR test in 90 minutes (Austria). Any outfit that takes more than 3 hours is incompetent, or a scam!
