COVID-19 SCREENING SERVICE LAUNCHED AT VICTORIA LEEDS
The site will offer a Fit to Fly service for those flying abroad from May 17th
Cignpost ExpressTest (a division of Cignpost Diagnostics Ltd) has today opened a new walk-in Covid-19 screening service at Victoria Leeds
The new facility will be particularly useful for members of the public who are symptomless and do not qualify for NHS emergency testing, but require a negative result either to visit family members, or to fly abroad to green destinations after May 17th.
The tests on offer are priced at £80 per person for travel passengers and £99 per person for the test-only service. ExpressTest use 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 Victoria Leeds is the second ExpressTest site in Leeds, with the first being a drive-through facility at Headingley Stadium, and is one of ten new sites to open across the UK before the end of May. This expansion means that 80% of the population will be 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, London.

For the next few months and beyond, there will be a continued need for gold standard PCR testing, particularly with travel recommencing from May 17th. This new site at Victoria Leeds , Leeds is an exciting addition to our services based across the UK. We’re pleased to bring Covid-19 screening services to the local community, and whether for personal or business travel, we can deliver them at an affordable cost.”

The new ExpressTest facility at Victoria Leeds is part of that journey, as it will help the people get rapid tests, travel abroad and reconnect with family and friends safely once restrictions end.”
