All providers added to our listings have met the government’s minimum standards for providers of Day 2 & 8 Testing, Day 2 Testing, Test to Release for international travel, or General Covid-19 testing (the Declaration), and may appear on either a single government list or a combination of lists. We include all major providers with publicly listed pricing, who offer tests to individual consumers.
By using our comparison service, you agree to take full and sole liability for ensuring that the provider you select matches your requirements, and to assure yourself that they are an approved government provider. Government guidance and the approved provider lists are constantly changing so, if you spot something that isn’t quite right, contact us and we’ll address it as soon as possible.
All test bookings are made direct with the provider, under the terms and conditions laid out by that provider and as such Covid Testing Network cannot enter into communications regarding an individual test booking. We do not have access to any personal information relating to test bookings.
Providers with a Verified stamp on their listing have confirmed that their listing information is accurate, and regularly update us to incorporate any changes to pricing or specifics.
If you have a concern about the services of any of our Verified or Featured providers, please contact us. We cannot enter into conversation relating to any non-Verified providers listed on this site.
If you're interested in becoming a Verified provider, please contact us and we'll be in touch soon!
Covid Testing Network was started as a volunteer network by Mike Fischer CBE in March 2020.
Mike directs SBL, an independent non-profit medical research laboratory in Oxfordshire and following suggestions from his team, Mike converted the lab to testing for Covid-19. The lab was quickly able to provide 250-500 tests a week to local NHS health care workers with a half-day turnaround. After seeing the impact that testing at SBL had on the local area, Mike wanted to encourage other labs to follow the example, and created the Covid Testing Network, with the hope that it would expand these services and help fight the battle against Covid-19 across the UK.
The Fischer Family Trust committed £1 million of seed funding to get the project going.
In May 2020, with increased capacity for high quality PCR testing, a contract for the Department of Health and Social Care in place and an established UK wide network of UKAS accredited ISO laboratories, Covid Testing Network extended it's testing to provide testing plans for commercial workforces of between 25-10,000 people.
Covid Testing Network was co-founded by Tim Perkin.
Tim was instrumental in pulling together the initial team of volunteers and helping laboratories source vital consumables to support the DHSC's testing efforts in the early days of the virus.
Subsequently, Tim has led the team in developing it's offer to include a range of commerical testing plans. Tim's commitment to quality, efficiency and best value runs throughout the networks operation's and has won them contracts with leading Occupational Heath Providers and high profile workplaces across a range of sectors.
Prior to setting up Covid Testing Network, Tim founded a highly successful software company in the education sector after spending his early career in various organisations including Lloyds Banking Group.
