Racoo Screening Limited is a fully approved private provider of coronavirus testing promoted by the Department of Health and Social Care.

It complies with all the Government regulations with respect to submitting results to PHE and the relevant Public Health Authority.

Racoo has successfully tested over ten thousand people for coronavirus since the pandemic began and regularly receives multiple 5 star google reviews.

The private facility can test for various purposes - RT-PCR for Flight, RT-PCR for Test to Release, Rapid Anitgen, Rapid Antibody tests, and can provide Air Travel Approved RT-PCR Tests.

The site offers a new way for the public to get access to testing services previously only available from the NHS if they were showing symptoms. The company also provides local and national covid-19 testing solutions for businesses and organisations.

“We are very excited to be using our experience of providing testing to companies and organizations to benefit individual members of the public.” said Simon Cady, Director at Racoo.

“We have over 20 years experience in providing reliable testing with fast turnaround times. We provide a professional and friendly service and we are pleased to make these available to the South West public via a drive in testing facility.”

The Racoo facility is open for bookings with tests starting at £75. For more information on all tests available, visit www.racoorapidtesting.com or call 01793 677480.

Racoo is also busy supporting organisations with on-site testing. The sample collection team are working with local manufacturing and international shipping companies testing staff in roles where working from home is not possible.

Racoo Screening is expanding and streamlining its operation to allow for increased capacity at the facility for summer travel plans.
