Default TB Test - Uk Test Centre Acceptable?

Hi All,
We're about to start our Spouse Visa Application Journey - with some nervousness - and hoping for some help from the forum....

My wife is a Russian National currently here in the UK visiting (on a 2 year family/visitor visa) - In January she is returning home to Russia and we plan to submit our spouse visa application along with attending biometrics appt
So my idea was to get her TB test done while here in the UK at an approved home office clinic in Manchester. This test cert apparently can only have my UK home address detailed

And then she will be submitting this while in Russia, from what I have read providing its an approved home office TB clinic I think... it would be ok?

It would make life easier to get it done here as opposed to the day before the biometrics appointment (as the test centre is in Moscow) - and in my mind the objective is to have a clear test result.
But of course a little worried - could the clearance officer take issue that its not a 'Russian TB Center' - given the current situation etc. I cant see anywhere that says we cant but I may be missing something.

Any help would be much appreciated.

How long has your wife been in the UK? Was she living in Russia before she arrived in the UK?

Hi BritInParis,

Sorry for my late reply! - She lives in Russian and has been in the UK for a few months visiting me on a visitor visa (which expires 2025) - so it was much easier to get the TB test and Language Test done while being legitimately here which is just a 1hr drive as opposed to back in Russia would mean a flight to another city. The approved TB test centre in Manchester accepted accepted our application for a test - and we have a UK Pre-departure Tuberculosis Detection Programme Medical Certificate.

I'm hoping given we used an approved TB test centre on their list - that location is irrelevant and its more about a clean result.
