    Hi, Has anyone used the boots covid test service?

    It states the results are messaged to you the next day in a text.

    Has anyone used the service, and were the results back within 24 hours or longer?


    Not sure whether to book it..

    Thanks.

    If you think you need a test why don't you ring GP and they can refer you?

    Won't cost you anything compared to Boots.

    I don't have symptoms, the boots testing service is not for people with symptoms, it's for travel/work related or 'peace of mind' tests.

    I need the result for Monday, that's why I can't do the HSE one either, as they could give me the test date any date within the next week really.

    At the minute if referred through HSE to swiftque its test arranged pretty straight away with test same day and results within 30 hours . That’s of course if symptomatic and referred by gp

    Thanks, that's good but I don't have symptoms, and I need to time the test perfectly within a 72 hour period that's why I'm getting it Sunday morning in boots and hoping for the results by monday, it states on Boots website the results are the following day , but I'm just being extra cautious :rolleyes:
