how can Bright World help?

Who can provide me with the correct test?

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.

Parental permission form or email consent

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.

How do I travel to the clinic to get a test?

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.

which testing companies should I use?

question mark

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.
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 are also recommending Concepto Clinics that have 15 clinics across the UK and accept students who are under 16 for RT-PCR Tests. As the clinics are ISO 15189 accredited, these are suitable for Hong Kong students.

We have however heard good reviews about DocTap who provide a 3 hour return on PCR results and are conveniently based in London and near to London Heathrow.

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.
