48 hours seems tight to get a test done and receive the result....?
Any preferred testers?
If you have had both vaccines you wont need to quarantine when you get here.

Yes, that I know.
On a related point: the NHS app now includes a record of vaccination. But we've been unable to discover whether it works without real time network access.
I strongly recommend printing the details in advance and taking them with you. You can do this from the app (if it has received two vaccination messages) or have it emailed to you.
Good suggestion Jonathan, thanks....
Has no one left the uk recently?
My son's girlfriend returned to France yesterday. She got a test done by the Guildhall Practice on Friday morning - https://theguildhallpractice.co.uk/pcr-covid-19-tests-for-travel/oxford/. It did seem a little strange, done out of a car boot in the Oxford Rugby Club car park. Having said that she got her certificate in plenty of time to travel. The bloke doing it said he was mobile and moved from site to site throughout the day, so not just in Oxford and not a one man band.
what is the difference in these tests versus the one I have to do in my mothers nursing home
that is free and takes 15 minutes ?
Done from a car boot does sound strange, it obviously worked though. It's the timing that concerns me, 48 hours didn't seem long enough.
that is free and takes 15 minutes ?"
These are probably PCR, and what you are describing is a lateral flow test.
But beyond that the government's defined set of PCR suppliers for travel certification are charging very high prices compared to other countries or to typical prices of other PCR tests for infectious diseases.

None of the testing is free, some are paid for by the taxpayer, others are paid for directly by the person taking the test.
