How is the Covid test taken?
A Covid swab test requires you to insert a thin, flexible swab with a cotton tip into your mouth and nose in order to sample the presence of coronavirus. The swab is rotated several times in both before being withdrawn and it is then sealed in a tube to be sent to our laboratory for analysis. This can be uncomfortable and this discomfort can last for up to 24 hours.
If you prefer to have help with your swab test, both in-clinic and supervised video appointments are available. The Medwyn Covid Team also have swabs that are suitable for children.
