FAQs on The Whitehall Clinic Covid-19 testing services

What are the different Covid-19 Antibody Tests?

The two Covid-19 Antibody Tests that we offer are the Covid-19 Rapid In-Clinic Antibody Test and the Covid-19 Lab-Based Antibody Testing.

Will I have Covid-19 antibodies if I have had the vaccine?

Based on the latest scientific evidence, if you have had the vaccination against Covid-19, then antibodies will be clearly visible in your blood within a few weeks. We can provide either a Rapid or lab-based antibody test to confirm this!

Do you test patients with symptoms?

We do not test patients with current Covid-19 symptoms. Please visit an NHS testing centre. 

How do I find out my test results?

For the Covid-19 Lab-Based Antibody Testing, we will email your results and a detailed explanation the day after your appointment. Please check your junk/spam folders before contacting us regarding your results.

For the Covid-19 Rapid In-Clinic Antibody Test your results will be immediate and given to you after your test.

How reliable are your Antibody tests?
  • Covid-19 Lab-Based Antibody Blood Test 

Our antibody tests are carried out in a UKAS accredited Virology laboratory. The test screens for the presence of IgG antibodies which indicates if an individual has previously had Covid-19. They can be detected normally 14 days following the infection.

Specificity for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2: Specificity is the proportion of patients without antibodies who have a negative test or true negative rate 100%

Sensitivity for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2: Sensitivity is the proportion of patients with antibodies who have a positive test or the true positive rate 97.5%

  • Covid-19 Rapid In-Clinic Antibody Test *NEW & APPROVED*

The manufacturer of our MHRA approved test states the following accuracy: based off a sample of 615 people (403 positive and 212 negative), the test is 95.12% accurate.

If I have Covid-19 antibodies, does it make me immune?

This is the current thinking on Immunity – Does It Exist With Covid-19?

Our take home message from recent studies on antibodies and immunity, is that a primary infection with SARS-CoV-2 provides at least 94% protection against symptomatic reinfection for at least 5 months. This suggests that natural infection provides short term protection against Covid-19 that is very similar to that conferred by vaccination.

Importantly, natural infection induces approx. 75% protection against asymptomatic reinfection, suggesting that people who have recovered from SARS-Cov-2 infection are much less likely to transmit the virus to others. This is good news in terms of the long term trends of the pandemic. However, asymptomatic reinfections are not zero, so you cannot assume that just because you have had the virus before that you can’t be infectious.

These data reinforce the message that, for the time being, everyone should consider themselves to be a potential source of infection for others and should behave accordingly. Wear a mask, avoid crowded closed poorly ventilated spaces wherever possible and wash your hands.

These reported protective ‘efficacy’ results for natural SARS-COV-2 infection are comparable to the current COVID-19 vaccines.

Having the vaccine after recovering from COVID-19 is not an issue or contraindication – and will likely boost the natural immunity.  We also see this with the seasonal flu vaccine

Conclusion: The good news is that there is significant evidence  that reinfections of Covid-19 is rare, at least at this stage, and that having antibodies will provide protection for a meaningful amount of time, although it may not be lifelong immunity. Get the vaccine too!

Testimonials 

Excellent service from making the appointment to attending. Results were emailed to me the same day. The staff were efficient and friendly and Dr Khan was extremely helpful in advising us of the correct test we needed. After hearing about other test centres that failed to submit the tests on time I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic.

We booked our COVID test to obtain a fly safe certificate. We arrived a few minutes before the appointment and were seen at our appointment time. The doctor who performed the test was very reassuring and confident. I received my results back 25 hours after the test, however there was a bit of stress as my husband didn't get his for another 3 hours after me. However we both got our results back in plenty of time to get the fly safe certificate and we are now very much looking forward to our holiday

Needed a RT-PCR Covid -19 Test and lab results, along with a Fit-to-Fly certificate at the last minute. Spoke with one of the Clinic Partners, Practice Manager, Reception and of course the Doctor - throughout the whole process from start to finish. Everyone was fantastic, knew the answers and gave me the assurances I needed. Having already spoken to several other clinics, it was clear Whitehall were at the top of their game. Truly excellent throughout, would highly recommend and thank you once again.
