Test to Release is a scheme to allow travellers to be released from quarantine early after taking a COVID test when they return from a UK Gov AMBER country.  You can test 5 full days after arriving in England and Collinson  is the only UK provider offering cutting-edge RT-PCR tests, passing UK Governments strict qualifying measures while delivering an exit from quarantine at Day 5.

The test should be booked before you travel home so the details can be entered on your Passenger Locator Form. Make sure you book your appointment as soon as you can to secure your preferred testing slot on Day 5 at any of the Collinson test centres.  

For example, if you leave a destination at 11am on Monday, Tuesday will be your first full day. You can take a test no earlier than your fifth full day of self-isolation - Saturday. You must continue to self-isolate until you receive your test result.

Test to Release PCR Test £95 – Results available next day upto 23:59 hours.

You can pre-book your test in advance by visiting: Collinson Testing Centres
