COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") Information
We are able to perform blood testing in those aged 16 years and over to see if you have had Covid-19 infection. This is not the PCR nose/throat swab test for to screen for current, active infection. The test we are offering checks if your immune system has encountered Covid-19 in the past few months, by testing a blood sample to see if you have developed an immune response (antibodies) to the virus.

- Read this first: H.S.E. patient advice page
- After you have read the information in 1 (above), phone your General Practitioner surgery (do not attend your G.P. surgery in person). We are not providing a testing/assessment service for current, active infection at our clinic at present.
