Another point, what if you don't complete the day 2 and day 8 tests. Even though you left the UK, a condition of entry is that your tests on days 2 and 8 after arrival, those results are needed for tracking in case you were positive. The fact that you are not currently in the UK doesn't exempt you from this obligation!
If you're a "regular foreign worker" you can get exemptions about having to *pay* for day 2 or 8 if your stay is less than that but they've tightened up the conditions recently.
Having the obligation to pay without the obligation to take the test seems simply like money grabbing.
It's actually possibly a good idea to book in-clinic tests then cancel them if you can get a refund.
