HIV Testing

HIV Testing

Treatment of HIV is now very advanced and there are many benefits to testing and knowing your status early.

Who should test?

HIV testing is routinely offered to everybody as part of a routine sexual health screen. Staff will be able to talk thorough any concerns with you that you may have and if you are screening within a specific window period we may advise you to return for a repeat test.

Rapid HIV Testing

It is possible in certain circumstances to carry out a HIV test where the results are known within minutes. These are not always appropriate to offer depending on the timescale between potential risk and the test being carried out.
