Need a Covid Test?

For all those needing a Covid-19 test, Hospital Particular (HPM), Funchal is offering a drive through service.

PCR Test for COVID 19 

This is the test of choice for the diagnosis of COVID 19, as it directly investigates the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (coronavirus) in the airways. 

CENTRO DE RASTREIO MÓVEL  

The method used detects the presence of the viral RNA and is called PCR (polymerase chain reaction). It is highly sensitive  and specific as it simultaneously identifies several genes of the virus. 

The Hospital Particular da Madeira is now equipped with a mobile screening test facility (“drive through”) with the latest  technology. The tests can be undertaken by anyone who wishes to be screened, by individuals who need the test for travel  purposes, or by the employees of companies that need to have their workforce tested.
