Test and Post – Home Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections
People over the age of 16 can take a test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and/or a test for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C in their own home.
The kit has everything needed to complete the test. Once a sample has been collected, simply post it back in the Freepost envelope provided to the laboratory for testing. If results are positive, the local sexual health service will get in contact to arrange free and confidential treatment.
