Testing times

Despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been wonderful to see how Cornish businesses have adapted and evolved.

We catch up with Dr Joachim Stolte at MEDFacials. He has launched a new sister company, Rapid Health Test, which offers PCR services to those needing private Covid testing. “We have had a busy year here at MEDfacials,” says Dr Stolte. “We have had to switch our business model around significantly to accommodate our aesthetic clients under new guidelines.

“We have updated our website to allow our customers to buy their products online. And we have set up virtual consultations by video and phone to let customers discuss their worries and concerns, even when our clinic doors have been closed.”

One of MEDfacials’ most significant achievements has been to launch a new arm to MEDfacials – Rapid Health Test. Rapid Health Test has allowed Dr Stolte and his team to provide a unique service to clients in Cornwall and around the UK, offering private Covid-19 Antigen and same-day PCR Tests. “Our service includes in-clinic consultations and at-home testing,” he continues, “making it easy for people to choose the right test and get results quickly. Our antigen results can be done in just thirty minutes.”

PCR testing has become a part of our lives, and for many people, private testing allows them to make essential journeys, including for work. As we look towards restrictions hopefully easing this summer, it may also be a requirement for some leisure travel and holidays abroad.

MEDFacials and Rapid Health Test is currently the only government-approved clinic in Cornwall to offer same-day PCR with Fit to Fly Travel Certification. Dr Stolte and his team are fully CQC and UKAS registered, meaning you are in the safest of hands, with reliable results guaranteed. And with all test results ready in just 30 minutes and no worries about delays with couriers, forgotten or lost lab samples, it couldn’t be easier to get your results with MEDfacials, Truro, and Rapid Health Test. Plus, if you quote ‘Cornwall Living’, you can receive £10 off your PCR testing with Rapid Health Test!

“We are so proud to be able to offer this service to people now,” finishes Dr Stolte, “and we can’t wait to open our clinic doors again to our MEDfacials customers from April 12th as well.”
