COVID-19 In-house Testing
First Medical Consultants are now offering Coronavirus testing at our clinic in Stoke-on-Trent.
We will ask you to take a swab from inside your throat and nose. This swab is then tested for the virus itself and identifies the Viral DNA. The results are guaranteed to be available within 48 hours – usually in 24 hours.

Swabs are analysed in a laboratory with results back in 2 working days.
