Medbury Medical Services, one of the accredited COVID-19 testing centres and a notable member of the Lagos State Laboratory Consortium, has announced the opening of an ultra-modern drive-through COVID testing centre in Lekki Phase I, Lagos.
The centre is known as Medbury COVID-19 Testing Centre.
Already serving Nigerians in Lagos through its testing centres in Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja; and Lekki Phase I as well as offering home & office testing services within Lagos, Medbury has continued to support government efforts in ensuring the COVID-19 pandemic is contained.
Located just before the Catholic Church of Divine Mercy, and at the centre of Admiralty Way in Lekki Phase I, clients can now get their tests taken within 15 minutes of arrival at the new drive-through and walk-in COVID-19 test centre.
The testing centre is uniquely comfortable, clean, well-organised with well-trained employees and sample collectors; all optimised to ensure extremely fast service with minimal waiting time.
Speaking on the new facility, the Managing Director of Medbury Medicals, Dr Itunu Akinware, said, “The need for a world-class, efficient, quick yet reliable service was crucial to our clients and we had to rise up to this challenge. We had to build a facility that was comparable to those found in other parts of the world.”
She said, “Results of tests are delivered the next day via e-mails and clients are advised to plan for results within 24 to 48 hours.
“In addition, as an innovative company, Medbury has taken a step ahead and leveraged the use of technology to tackle counterfeiting and fake results through its bespoke verification platform that is currently being used by airlines, foreign embassies and other stakeholders to authenticate results taken at all Medbury COVID-19 Testing Centre.”
Akinware added, “This effort has drastically reduced the incidence of fake COVID -19 test results, as all results by Medbury can be easily confirmed on the Medbury website or through the Medbury Lab App that can be downloaded on Google Playstore in the coming days.”
Medbury Services Limited is a company building businesses across the healthcare value chain, with the vision is to provide holistic ‘end-to-end’ services that cover the healthcare needs of Nigerians.
