We've had lots of queries from local people wanting to know where they can buy 'fit-to-fly' tests that are required before or after travel.
Healthwatch Reading does not endorse, recommend or approve any private test provider, it is a matter for individual consumer choice. To help people choose, we've compiled a list of local organisations that show up on Internet searches.
