Sexual Health Testing
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we've had to make a few changes to our services but we're still here if you need us.Our sexual health team are currently unable to offer any face-to-face services, including sexual health testing. To read more about the services we are offering remotely, visit our remote services list.
Sexual health clinics remain open for urgent cases, so if you need to you can still speak to a medical professional about your sexual health. You should contact them by phone and only attend in person if asked to do so by their staff. You can find your nearest sexual health clinic on the NHS website.
When to Test?
If you're having sex with multiple, new and casual partners, it's advised that you test as frequently as every 3 months, as this is the window period for a lot of HIV tests to accurately pick up the virus (including ours). If you're having fewer instances of condomless sex then get in to the routine of having a HIV test at least once every 12 months.
