What is a PCR Test?

PCR is a laboratory-based test that uses a nasal/throat swab sample to detect RNA related to coronavirus.

Why do I need a PCR test for travel/work purposes/access to healthcare?

We are able to offer tests which will give you the necessary lab report to enter these countries with no restrictions.

For popular destinations, you must produce evidence of results from a test taken within 72-hours of your flight.(Please check with your airline – as this timescale sometimes differs) These restrictions apply to all arrivals.

In the UK you cannot use public transportation if you have the virus or if you have the symptoms.

Our testing service will provide you with your results wehich will be sent out next day prior to 5.30pm.

Therefore, getting tested is essential for anyone planning on travelling overseas.

When should I book the test?

Our testing service will provide the vast majority of patients with results via email and will be sent out next day prior to midnight.

Occasionally problems outwith our control (in the laboratory, or with couriers) mean results are delayed. Therefore, unfortunately, we cannot offer a guarantee that results are back by a specific time.

How reliable is the test?

The test has the sensitivity of 98% and a specificity of 100%.

Will the test tell me if I’ve recently had the virus?

No. A PCR test looks for current infection.

What should I do if I receive a positive result?

If you receive a positive result, this means that you are currently infected with COVID-19, and you could pose a risk to others around you. Therefore, you should self-isolate immediately, and inform those you have been in contact within the last 7 days in case this result affects them.

Also, you must consent to enter the NHS Track & Trace with a positive result

If you would like further information on what you should do if you receive a positive result, you should visit or contact the NHS on 111.

Service available to:

Asymptomatic patients where a negative PCR test is required prior to essential travel .

Invalid results

On a very rare occasion, a person’s swab will come back with a result as INVALID.

This can happen if there is not enough moisture in the throat or nasal cavities and therefore not enough viral DNA is collected to enable a successful test.

Please be aware that if this happens, there will not be enough time to carry out a second swab and you will not have a result to enable you to travel.

Cancellation Policy

Due to high demand, Full payment is taken at the time of booking.

We understand that flights can be cancelled or rescheduled and to accommodate for this we do offer to reschedule your appointment as many times as you like but if you still require to cancel then £30 per person applies

I just want to say a huuuuuge thank you re your fantastic service and all of you for being so reassuring, caring and patient re my being a stressed, flustered and potentially "pain in the bum' client. Thank you so much for helping and filling in the Japanese Forms!
11 Stars Team! We are all on our flights to Japan thanks to all of you. I shall be putting up the fab review you deserve.


I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.

Linnea Blair

“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”

Mrs Johnston

We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”

Mrs Crawford

“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”
