As international travel increases with the easing of lockdown, some countries may require travellers to obtain a certificate to prove a negative COVID-19 test. However, these certificates – as well as COVID-19 tests – are outside of our remit and we therefore cannot provide either.
Patients must obtain these tests and travel permits from private travel clinics, for which there will be a fee.
Similarly, some surgical teams are requesting that patients obtain a COVID-19 antigen test from their GP as part of their pre-operative assessment.
However, we are unable to provide these tests, and they fall under the responsibility of the surgical provider to arrange.
