I’m looking for a PCR test the only ones available I can see are by blood testing 

I am not sure if they meet the percentage requirements needed to enter the UK 

I needed a nose and mouth swab test to come here

I cannot take the slightest chance that it’s not acceptable upon arrival

Good evening 

The PCR Covid test( Polymerase Chain Reaction) is a Throat/ Nasal swab not a blood test and will be available at private hospital/ Clinic’s near you, also some Pharmacies are offering them too.

Unfortunately I am unaware of anything in your area
