This option enables individuals to take the swab in the comfort of their own home, before bringing the swab into our collect and drop sites in the bag provided to be sent for testing.

Please note: We do not provide return postage, and strongly advise against posting your kit back to us under any circumstances. If you decide to arrange your own postal return, LivingCare cannot be held responsible for any delay in your results being sent to you.
