John Bell and Croyden Pharmacy Launches Same-Day Coronavirus Tests

John Bell and Croyden one of the oldest pharmacy's in the world and holder of the royal warrant to the Queen, has joined forces with the Regenerative Clinic - the European leaders in regenerative medicine - to offer same-day and next day Covid-19 testing in the heart of London's medical quarter.

The rapid coronavirus testing service is available at John Bell and Croyden's Wigmore Street store and in their Lloyd's Pharmacy concession at Selfridges department store on Oxford Street.

The service is being launched to help ease the pressure on the NHS as we head into winter. It will also deliver an improvement on home test kits, with customers able to access rapid results and all tests being performed and evaluated by a healthcare professional.

Alexander Johnston, General Manager at John Bell & Croyden, says: “John Bell & Croyden is pleased to be working with the Regenerative Clinic to offer customers our new in-store testing service in our bid to contribute to nationwide efforts in the fight against COVID-19. We hope that by offering this to our local community, we can provide additional support to our health workers and expand testing capacity at a critical time of need, and hopefully provide reassurance to people as we head into winter.”

The high-speed test is being offered in partnership with The Regenerative Clinic – Europe’s largest centre for regenerative medicine. The company recently announced the launch of a new Covid-19 testing facility in London’s Harley Street Medical Area, with capacity to process up to 1,500 tests per day. The new facility guarantees the return of test results on the same day or within 24 hours.

This new rapid coronavirus testing service is aimed at groups, individuals and businesses who need test results returned to meet personal, business and travel commitments and to help get London moving again.

Simon Checkley, CEO, The Regenerative Clinic, says; “We recently set up our own private lab to help circumnavigate the backlog that we are seeing across London, and are delighted to partner with John Bell & Croyden to offer customers in the area the fastest turnaround times available when it comes to testing. Predominantly, we wanted to increase the ease of COVID-19 testing for our own existing patients at The Regenerative Clinic. Having experienced some delays in test returns from sending out samples to already very busy laboratories, we decided to take the step of investing in our own facility. This not only eases the burden on approved laboratories which are used for NHS testing, but also gives broader access to first rate on-site analysis right in the very heart of Central London.”

Please note, John Bell & Croyden’s private COVID-19 testing service is aimed at those who are not exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. The test costs £199 for next day results and £229 for same day testing (taken before 12 noon). The service is available in store Monday to Friday. Book a Covid-19 test online at
