Booking your test
Step 1: Book online and complete a booking for EACH family member taking the test
Step 2: Taking the test
Step 3: Test results
Note: If you have a test in the morning we will often have it back by the end of the day. Otherwise we advise to allow 24 hours.
Fit to fly - please allow as much time as you can.
We use external laboratories for Fit-to-Fly tests and have no control over their processing times once we have couriered your sample.
Laboratories may also need to sometimes repeat tests which could impact upon the time you receive your test.
Whilst we will do our very best to ensure your result is returned on time, Dr. Shilpa Dave is unable to accept liability or provide any compensation for costs you may incur due to delayed results.
