Information for Pharmacies
How do I self-declare?
Pharmacies in England are required to self-declare to the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) if they sell Covid-19 tests to customers. It typically takes 2-3 business days for DHSC to approve your pharmacy as a compliant reseller of Covid-19 tests. You will then be listed on gov.uk.
Good news for pharmacy groups – you only need to self-declare once for your parent company.

What is PCR testing?
A COVID-19 PCR test looks for the presence of the COVID-19 virus on a sample take from the nose and throat. Medicspot has partnered with a world -class UKAS accredited laboratory to provide this testing to ensure fast and accurate results.
If done correctly, the ability of this test to detect the virus (sensitivity) is 98%+, and the ability of the test to correctly identify those who are not infected (specificity) is 99%+.
