Daleswood Health offers a full range of COVID-19 services to help our patients manage the rapidly changing advice and access healthcare safely and quickly. We are registered with UKAS to provide COVID testing.
Same Day COVID Test
Laboratory testing was the only way to test and when they became overwhelmed testing is restricted to those who are unwell with delays of up to 4 days for the result. The sooner we know if you have the virus the sooner you can stop the spread, make decisions, travel, work or just know. That is why we now have Vivalytic testing at Daleswood Health with a genuine RT-PCR result in as little as 45 minutes.
Doctors use tests to aid diagnosis, monitor conditions and treatment. In isolation, tests can be very misleading and only ever form part of the picture as no test is 100% accurate. There are 2 main types of COVID-19 test currently available – ‘Antigen’ and Antibody. The WHO / UK recommend RT-PCR swab test which looks for the virus ‘Antigen’ and the Antibody blood test which looks for the body’s response to the virus. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of test but the most important thing is to get the right test, performed correctly at the right time.
