Frequently Asked Questions

Here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Depending on the sample type required, HHC will provide a fully qualified clinical staff member to collect your sample. HHC employs Nurses, Advanced Paramedics, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, and trained sample-takers, and depending on your requirements one of these healthcare professionals will help with your sampling requirements.

If you have not received your COVID-19 PCR result then there may be an error with your email address or phone number. Please contact us immediately by phone or email for assistance and we’ll get you looked after.

On very rare occasions the laboratory may not be able to get a clear “Positive” or “Negative” result from your sample. There are several potential reasons for why this may have occurred. It is important to note that an indeterminate result should be repeated because a conclusive answer has not been reached. If the laboratory obtained an indeterminate result, we will contact you to arrange a free-of-charge retest.

A pain in the ar**! But seriously, COVID-19 is a disease that originates from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is a nasty acute respiratory syndrome that affects your lungs – hence breathing issues.

Currently, we can test for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 through Antigen testing (tests specifically looking for the antigens produced by the virus) and PCR testing (polymerase chain reaction, it looks for the virus’ DNA).

Antigen testing can be performed with a result being obtained within 15 minutes of providing the sample. PCR samples must be sent to our specialist laboratory for analysis. PCR testing is considered the “Gold Standard” for the diagnosis of COVID-19, where Antigen rapid kits are deemed to be a very effective screening test for almost instant answers. All patients who receive a positive Antigen result should be retested by PCR methods for confirmation.

If you are positive for your PCR test you will receive your results by email and you will be advised to contact your GP/Doctor. All Positive PCR results will be notified to the HPSC for contact tracing purposes.

A positive result by rapid antigen test indicates that you have tested positive for the detection of COVID-19 specific antigens. This would usually mean that you have an active covid infection. It’s important to note that rapid antigen testing is a screening method and all positives should be confirmed through PCR analysis.

We offers saliva-based rapid antigen kits that are a non-intrusive method of obtaining your sample for analysis. The testing kit for saliva antigen testing  works in a similar way to the routine nasal based kit except instead of having a swab inserted into your nose or throat, you will simply provide a saliva sample. A little bit grosser, but significantly less intrusive!

Taking a specimen for PCR testing typically involves a sample being taken from both your throat and nasal passage using a suitable swab.

There is no age limit for COVID-19 testing using either PCR or Antigen based methods. It is important to note however that very young children may find the swabbing process uncomfortable. Our swab takers will take every care to make the process as easy as possible, however, some levels of discomfort may be expressed. If you intend to have your child tested, please feel free to contact us by phone or email ahead of time to make prior arrangements.

Hibernian Health Check is in Unit 4, The Westway Centre, Ballymount Ave, Ballymount, Dublin 12. You can also hit the following link: https://goo.gl/maps/CnX25CX9gHtXWcXTA

HHC source their Antigen kits from world-leading suppliers. HHC ensure that all our rapid antigen kits are CE-IVD marked meaning they have been approved for use in Europe.

You can order a PCR or Antigen test at any time. Typically, our customers order tests if they are due to travel internationally or if they are feeling unwell and displaying Covid symptoms. Other’s order their tests just for peace of mind or if they are going to visit a family member or friend.

Whilst it isn’t compulsory to be tested ahead of returning to your office, we have assisted many people in getting a COVID-19 test result ahead of returning to their place of work. Some companies have made it a requirement to be tested ahead of returning to work whilst other companies have integrated a testing policy within their company for their staff’s wellbeing. If you or your company would like to know more about this service, please email us on info@hhc.ie.

Taking a swab or blood sample typically takes about 5 – 10 minutes. However, our medical staff will spend as much time as is necessary with you to always ensure your comfort.

Depending on the tests that you have had this will determine how you will receive your results. For example. COVID-19 antigen results can be obtained at the time of testing. COVID-19 PCR tests will be sent directly to you by email or text typically within 12 -36 hours after samples were taken. Some of our blood-based test results will be sent back to you directly and other more advanced genetic test results will be issued to your designated GP or medical consultant.

Our testing services are listed on the website, however, should you have any queries or would like to discuss pricing please feel free to email or call us.

All shipments are dispatched using our partner couriers Fastways, TNT or An Post. Delivery times from the date of dispatch typically takes up to 2 business days. During busy periods (e.g. the lead up to Christmas) deliveries can sometimes take more than 2 days. You will be provided with a tracking number for all orders made online. All orders will be shipped within 1 business day from the date of purchase.
