A significant number of people in the United Kingdom are unaware of their HIV infection and remain at risk to their own health and of passing their virus unwittingly on to others. HIV is now a treatable medical condition and the majority of those living with the virus remain fit and well on treatment
However, late diagnosis of HIV is the most important factor associated with HIV-related illness and death in the UK.
We therefore offer and encourage patients at risk to have an HIV test.
Some specific conditions seen in HIV infection mean we would highly recommended you have an HIV test.
We have instant point-of-care test (POCT) for HIV and the recommended gold standard HIV test.
Unlike pharmacies and big STD testing companies, we provide pre- HIV test counselling and offer support if a test result is positive and a referral to an HIV clinic.
