Just curious what the average time is. I was told to allow 5 days at the test centre but online says they aim for 48hrs. Has anyone got any experience of getting results from a test centre swabbing?

Thanks was that at a drive through test centre?

Mine took a week, and that was only after lots of chasing. I was tested at a drive through pre booked appointment

Yes, drive through but it was as an NHS employee.

Quick bump for some more answers! I’ve been waiting just over 48hrs now and no text!

A relative had his test result back in 48 hours, drive through test, he's non-NHS.
