For all covid tests ordered we advise you to have a consultation with our doctor. This ensures that the test result can be interpreted in light of your clinical situation. You can also contact your GP or 111 to discuss any symptoms you may be experiencing.
The covid testing may not accurately detect antibodies in people who have compromised immune systems or are using drugs that suppress the immune system, because their antibody response may be slower or weakened. You rely on the test at your own risk and as with any medical test, 100% accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
Negative results obtained with COVID-19 IgG antibodies are only indication that the specimen does not contain detectable level of antibodies and any negative result should not be considered as conclusive evidence that the individual has not been infected with the virus.
Figures quoted for the accuracy of the tests are from the manufacturer and when performed exactly as instructed and in the correct time frame.
As explained if the tests are not 100% specific or sensitive there is a small chance the test may be inaccurate, and we can accept no liability based on the result or 100% guarantee it’s accuracy.
The existence/extent/length of any immunity has not yet been definitively established. It is essential that you follow NHS and government guidelines for coronavirus and consult your doctor if appropriate.
Some research suggests that some individuals have been infected by covid-19 but do not produce detectable IgG antibodies. Studies are ongoing.
Please note that the antibody tests were developed for use and have been validated on venous blood samples (blood taken from a vein by a medical professional) rather than samples of blood taken from a fingerprick. This may affect the accuracy of the test.
For the antigen tests, one of the challenges is that the swab is difficult to perform and a poor quality sample reduces the sensitivity and therefore likelihood of false negative result. Alternatively, the virus may not be present at the site the sample was taken from. Timing may also be an issue: it could be too early or too late in the infection to detect the virus.
Unfortunately there is extremely high demand for the covid testing kits at present. Regrettably if we are unable to supply these to you we can provide a full refund. There may also be unforeseen delays which are out of our control in the delivery of covid testing kits.
This service is for routine medical enquires/ consultations and is not an emergency medical service.
If you have a medical emergency you should not use this service and instead you should call 999 or visit your local Accident and Emergency Department.
If you feel suicidal, you should not use this service, but should make contact with your GP or call 999 in an emergency.
If you are unwell and your GP surgery is closed please use the NHS 111 service.
If you are planning follow up with our doctor and become acutely unwell in the meantime you must contact your GP, 111 or 999.
If a consultation is not finished and it is felt more time is needed another appointment slot may need to be booked and paid for. If the matter has not been resolved and you would not like to book another appointment then we advise you to follow up with your own GP.
If after a consultation your health deteriorates or you are unwell we advise you to call your GP, 111 or 999 if it is an emergency.
We advise that this service is complementary to those offered by the NHS including your own GP and is not intended to replace it.
We advise that the outcome of your consultation with our doctor should be copied to your GP and a copy of the consultation can be provided to you, or if requested we can send it to your GP if you provide us with the relevant details.
Video calls can be offered on a variety of platforms including Skype and our clinic software.
Telephone or video calls may be recorded.
We do not guarantee that a telephone or video consultation is the best course of accessing advice or indeed the appropriate course of treatment for your particular healthcare concern or medical issue.
Prescriptions requests are at the discretion of the doctor. We are unable to prescribe some medications including but not limited to controlled drugs, those that require specialist monitoring, or ongoing repeat medication requests.
Prescriptions, sick notes and other certificates may only be available during office hours and are issued at our doctor’s discretion.
All services are for users in the United Kingdom only.
This service is suitable for those aged 18 or over.
We do not offer consultations for pregnant patients.
We do not offer consultations for children at present.
We cannot provide guidance about the health of a child, partner, relative or friend.
If you do not hear about an appointment within 4 weeks of your appointment you must contact the clinic or your NHS GP.
If you do not hear about a 2 week wait appointment please contact the clinic or your NHS GP.
If you do not receive an electronic communication as advised such as a prescription, sick note, consultation summary or referral letter after your consultation please contact us.
If you have been advised to collect a prescription from a pharmacy or ourselves and the prescription is not collected we cannot be held responsible for any adverse outcome.
The information and advice provided by us when you use the service is based on the information you have supplied to us.
It is your responsibility to ensure this information is correct and complete and you accept that failure to do so (whether intentionally or not) will affect the information and advice we give to you and the medicines we may supply to you and, as such, may have consequences for which we are not responsible.
Our doctor may need to ask sensitive medical questions as part of your consultation. Please ensure you are in a quiet, confidential place at your chosen time, free from interruptions.
You will need to make sure that you are in an area where your network or internet connection is not likely to be interrupted. This is especially important if you intend to use your mobile telephone for your telephone or video consultation.
We believe Skype to be a secure way of consulting. After your consultation the doctor will remove you from our contact list on Skype or other communication method including telephone. This means that whilst you may be able to still call us on video or telephone, we will not be able to answer. If you wish to speak to one of our doctors again, you will need to book and pay for another appointment.
If you would like to talk about a rash or other skin complaint, it is unlikely that our doctors would be able to have a clear enough view to help in diagnosis if you are using a mobile telephone to video consult.
If a video consult is failing then the doctor will ring your phone number listed and try to make contact this way. We accept no responsibility for any connection issues arising.
We reserve the right to make the decision whether or not our service is suitable for you.
We have a zero tolerance policy for verbal or physical abuse to our staff. We reserve the right to decline our services in this event.
