Covid Test In Aberdeen
Coronavirus Testing Service In Aberdeen
At Rosemount Pharmacy, we can now offer COVID-19 testing for patients across Aberdeen. You can select one of two options. A homes test kit, or an on-site test.
We are now able to offer private COVID-19 PCR testing. These covid tests can be used in several different scenarios.
If you are travelling outside of the U.K to another country, it is often the case a negative PCR test result is required.
Employers in certain industries require employees to undertake a test. Proof of a negative test result may be required. We are able to provide testing in this scenario.
Peace of Mind
If visiting vulnerable people, you may want to be as cautious as possible, in making sure you are not going to transmit the virus. For people perhaps visiting elderly relatives, or those with risk factors, a negative covid test will allow you to visit your loved one knowing you've done all you can to ensure no transmission of the virus occurs.

How it works
It is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. There is a risk that it can be done incorrectly however, so it's important to understand each step to make sure you get an accurate result.
The testing process involves taking a swab of the throat and tonsils area as well as a swab of both nostrils. This is done using the same swab.
We have a specialist COVID-19 technician who can take the sample for you on site. We are also able to assist with registering of the test kit. This then allows you to receive the RT PCR test certificate.
All tests used by the pharmacy are from UKAS and ISO accredited laboratories.
The results certificate obtained contains
- Patient details (Name, DOB etc.)
- Time of the report
- Time and date of the test
- Passport number
How long does it take?
It usually takes 24-36h for a certificate to be provided after receipt of the sample at the lab.
You can get a coronavrius test from our pharmacy at 102 Rosemount Place. We offer a range of testing services for those who need a test for travel or other purposes. You can book a covid test at our pharmacy clinic online or over the phone.
