Description

How the service works

  1. Order up to 5 Coronavirus (Covid-19) home collection test kits online. The tests will be sent to you directly by express delivery.
  2. Using the throat and nasal swabs provided you will need to collect a sample as directed. Once collected you simply pack and seal the kit in the prepaid envelope provided and post directly to the lab.
  3. Your samples will be analysed in a Public Health England approved lab and you will be notified that the results are ready via email and SMS. Results can then be viewed online.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 or know you have been in contact with someone who has been infected you can take a test to determine if you have been infected.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The main symptoms are:

high fever – you feel hot to touch on your back or chest

a new non-productive cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you have a cough already it may be worse than usual)

Are these tests legal?

Yes, these tests are completely legal. These are different to the rapid testing blood Coronavirus test kits. Those kits measure antibodies in the blood and are currently not advised for home use. Only healthcare professional use as although the information hey provide is generally robust, there is no clear advice on what to do after the test.

Unlike the antibody tests, these tests will not tell if you have previously been infected or whether you are currently immune. They will only tell you if you have a current active infection.

Are these tests accurate?

Although it is not possible to guarantee that any test kit is 100% accurate, these kits have a 98% accuracy specifically for the COVID-19 virus.

Are you offering any discounts to NHS keyworkers?

Yes. Please contact us at info@simplymedsonline.co.uk with your NHS I.D. and your keyworker role for your discount.

 

How to Use

How do these kits work?

These kits contain a nasal and throat swab which collect a sample of cells. These are then sent back to the lab for a sensitive analysis called RT-PCR which detects whether there is any COVID-19 genetic material present. This is present even very early on, before any symptoms of disease, the tests can tell whether or not someone’s symptoms are COVID-19 or whether you have very early infection, before any symptoms.

The kit is sent directly to your home as you will need to collect the sample. You will then need to return the sample in the prepaid envelope to the lab for analysis. The lab then inform you directly via email and SMS of your results. This usually takes 2-3 days depending on how quickly the same is returned and whether there are any postage delays.

Please note that SimplyMeds Online are only a partner. Any queries regarding these kits after purchase will need to be directed at the lab providing results. Rightangled is the lab and they are a healthcare provider registered by the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator and inspector of all healthcare services in England. All tests are done at an ISO and UKAS accredited laboratory that adhere to high standards of quality assurance and quality controls.
