Cignpost ExpressTest (a division of Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd) has today opened a new walk-in Covid-19 screening service inside Centrale Shopping Centre, Croydon. The site, located on the Lower Mall, is offering fast and accurate PCR swab tests.
The new facility is Cignpost ExpressTest’s first walk-in site both in a shopping centre and within London and will be of particular use to members of the public who are symptomless and so do not qualify for NHS emergency testing, but require a green light to visit family members or fly abroad after May 17th.
The tests on offer are priced at the discounted rate of £80 per person for travel passengers and £99 per person for the test-only service. ExpressTest is delivered using the latest gold standard PCR equipment that is fully CE-IVD certified and manufactured to the highest possible standards, and tests are carried out by trained Screening Practitioners.
The site at Centrale, is one of ten new sites to open across the UK before the end of May. The expansion of Cignpost means that 80% of the population are within a 60-minute drive of a Cignpost ExpressTest site. As well as being a selected provider of discounted COVID-19 testing to British Airways, the company also provides gold-standard PCR tests at Gatwick, Heathrow and Birmingham Airports, as well as at Brent Cross Shopping Centre.
