Bright World has found several companies that specialise in travel to Hong Kong. They have clinics in the UK, that can assist. Depending on where the clinic is, we can find one nearer to a student's school and make sure the timings will work out with their flight departure times.
Clinics will ask for parental permission to undertake the test and share details. Bright World will send a link to the form to parents for completion or will assist them to write an email.
Tests should be booked by overseas parents, as special consents are asked for which we are not qualified to give. Once the test is booked, we can arrange an escorted visit to the clinic. For younger students, our Bright World Buddies and trusted drivers have stayed with the child while they are having the test.
PLEASE NOTE YOU SHOULD TAKE YOUR PASSPORT WITH YOU WHEN HAVING YOUR TESTS AT A CLINIC
We are pleased we have been able to assist and get students home.
Bright World can help to recommend an accredited test centre, please contact us for more information.
We have met with Sirkkanetworks.com Sirkka offers a nationwide COVID-19 testing service and specialises in Hong Kong tests and has the necessary accreditation and ISO level 15189. They provide tests in clinics in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Chelmsford, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, on-site/home visits by medical professionals and by post to anywhere in the UK.
We have however heard good reviews about Collinson Group who provide a 3 hour return on PCR results and are conveniently based in London Heathrow, Luton, City and in Manchester.
Here is the list of all the UKAS Accredited Organisations offering Covid-19 tests. Please note that this list is not maintained by Bright World.
Su Warren, Director of Guardianships and Operations, has become our resident expert on testing and has helped several students get home safely already. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Our team of highly trained Admissions staff will be able to suggest alternative solutions for students who prefer a residential option this Summer, filling any gaps either end of the holidays with a short term host family.
We have an excellent choice of programmes which come with some unique opportunities; students even have the chance to live and study at Oxford and Cambridge University or spend their summer at the famous Caterham School.
