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.
