COVID-19 tests available

Breakspear Medical is CQC-registered for diagnostic and screening procedures, located in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire HP2 4Fd.


Breakspear Medical is pleased to offer the following blood tests & test kit (UK RESIDENTS ONLY):

COVID-19 IgG antibody tests

(by appointment only)

We offer a reliable UKAS-accredited laboratory blood test to find out if you have COVID-19 (Abbott: SARS-CoV-2) antibodies, a sign that your body has previously been infected with this coronavirus. This antibody test, which has a CE mark, a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of 97.5%, is the same test as one of those used by the NHS.

Most patients who recover from coronavirus have been found to produce antibodies, but it is not yet known if an individual with a positive result showing presence of IgG levels following being infected with SARS-CoV-2 will be protected, either fully or partially from future infection, or for how long protective immunity may last.

For accurate results, this test must be taken at least 14 days after symptoms occur. This is because our immune systems produce IgG antibodies 14 days or more after symptoms started, so this test will not provide an accurate result if the sample is taken too soon.

The COVID-19 IgG Antibody Test is available for £85 & includes:

  • an appointment at our CQC-registered clinic (see Location/Directions below)
  •  your blood sample to be taken by a qualified medical professional
  • your results, which will be emailed to you by us 2-4 days later

**UK residents only**

T cell & immune cells tests

(by appointment only)

Find out if you have low T cells (lymphocytes) and/or low levels of basophils (a type of white blood cell) by taking reliable UKAS-accredited laboratory full blood count test.

T cells normally work to eradicate viruses, while basophils help coordinate immune responses.

Recent studies have been looking at patients’ blood to see how the immune system responds to coronavirus and have identified that patients with inadequate levels of T cells and basophils seem more likely to experience severe disease, requiring intensive management.

We offer a variety of supplements which have been shown to increase these cell levels, which may help the body be more resilient to coronavirus.

The Full Blood Count Test is available for £45 & includes:

  • an appointment at our CQC-registered clinic (see Location/Directions below)
  •  your blood sample to be taken by a qualified medical professional
  • your results, which will be emailed to you by us 2-4 days later

**UK residents only**

Vitamin D tests

(at-home test)

Take a simple and reliable UKAS-accredited at-home test to find out if you are deficient in vitamin D, which is prevalent in severe COVID-19 cases.

It is estimated that in the UK, 20% of adults and 16% of children between the ages of 11 and 18 years are estimated to be deficient in vitamin D.

While vitamin D deficiencies are common, older adults and darker skinned people are more susceptible.

If you have been found to be deficient, a telephone consultation can be arranged to discuss options such as ergocalciferol injection or higher-concentration supplements.

The Vitamin D At-Home Test Kit is available for £56. Your at-home kit will be posted to you & includes:

  • a sterile finger prick blood collection device
  • a pathology form
  • a freepost envelope to send your sample to the laboratory

Your results will be emailed to you by us 2-4 days after you have posted your sample to the laboratory.

**UK residents only**
