Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect on the day of my test?

Upon arrival at the airport, clear signage will guide you to the Antigen Testing Centre entrance, next to Check-In Hall A, where you will be guided through to your appointment. When instructed, you will be called forward for your test. The trained clinician will give you the necessary instructions, and talk you through the process. During the test, samples will be taken from your throat, followed by your nose.

Please avoid eating for an hour or two prior to testing and bring a bottle of water in case you would like a drink after your swab.

How much does a test cost?

The Rapid Antigen test costs £39 per person.

How do I change or cancel my appointment

The NPH Group website will provide everything you need to change, amend or cancel your appointment. For cancellations within 48 hours of your arrival time, we regret that a refund will not be available.    

What should I do if my test comes back positive, or invalid?

In the event of a positive test, you must self-isolate in accordance with Government guidelines.

In the rare situation that your test is invalid, the sample will be retested. This may cause delay to your result being sent to you and you may not be able to obtain a result within your time-frame. 

In most cases, you will receive the result after an invalid test has been retested. The incidence of an invalid test is 1:1000.

We have reduced the risk of invalid tests and false negatives considerably by providing a face-to-face testing service which helps to ensure an adequate sample is collected.
