COVID-19 Testing

We are pleased to offer COVID-19 PCR, Antigen, and Antibody testing at our practice in New Malden.

Book your appointment

The Private GP Group is pleased to offer Coronavirus testing for both the virus and antibodies with quick turnaround times on results. We provide PCR, rapid Antigen, and Antibody testing. All results can be sent electronically along with a certificate where applicable at no extra charge.

All of our swabs are done at our New Malden site. We ask patients to wait in the car park and a clinician will come out to perform the swab safely.

Please continue to follow the government guidelines on Coronavirus.

Antibody Test

Our COVID-19 Antibody blood test tests for an immune response that could indicate a previous infection or the result of a vaccination. 

A blood sample is taken by one of our experienced in-house nurses.

Results are returned within 48 hours and will be sent electronically. A GP will also give you a call to explain exactly what your results mean.

The Private GP Group does not claim that you are immune to the virus in the future.

Member price: £65
Non Member price: £80

If you wish to have your antibodies retested, we will discount your second test by 20%. You must wait a minimum of 4 weeks to be retested.

Antigen Swab Test

Our Antigen swab tests for an active coronavirus infection. We can offer a rapid turnaround of results and a confirmation certificate where requested at no extra fee.

A sample is taken by a swab in the back of the nose and the throat.

Minimum sensitivity of 87-96%.

PCR Swab Test

PCR Swab testing is the most accurate available swab to test for an active coronavirus infection. A negative PCR result is now a common requirement for travel with many countries requiring a fit to fly certificate.

Minimum sensitivity of 98% and specificity of 100%.

Results back in up to 72 hours. Sent to you electronically along with a fit to fly certificate where requested at no extra cost.


How to Avoid Spreading the Infection

Please continue to follow the government guidelines to reduce the spread.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • Wear something that covers your nose and mouth in places where it's hard to stay away from other people
  • There are many places where you have to wear a face covering but if in doubt always play it safe and wear one
  • Some people are exempt from wearing a face mask, please seek advice from your GP if you think you might be
