Hi mate there’s a few places that do them including a small lab near the football ground in Roldan. I had mine done in Murcia City next to the large Leroy Merlin. Booked online. It was very clean and quiet. IMED. I paid around €40 for the antigen test and had results in 10 minutes. I’m sure though that LA will have more. I just wanted peace of mind of using an establish private hospital. Mark

Check UK still takes antigen test 

To translate into ENGLISH right click mouse

This is Murcia venue but they have other venues check out

Go onto the website in chrome browser and then right-click the mouse and click translate to English 

Cost me under £18

I have had my test 20 euros at the end of January and my husband end March 2021 for rapid antigen test (waited 5 mins collect on day) 

Meets more than governments rates 

It is 

For the antigen test 

The test has a sensitivity of 95.4% (our government's requirement 80%)

and a specificity of 100% (our government's requirement 97%)

with accuracy of 98.91%

https://cardiosalus.com/prueba-covid-murcia/ 

Easy to book online a test with lots of times to choose from. 

Once I have landed in the UK and got through with this test will let you know all OK

back in uk ok

Yes went from Alicante airport at the checking in desk they wrote in the boarding pass.  PCR Ok

At Gatwick airport at border control checked my antigen test and let me through and my husband for the same test 2 months later

So the 20 euro (£17.29) antigen test worked. All ok 

My husband did same test in March and other in April 2021

DO NOT OVER PAY for PCR test
