STI screening

We have the STI sampling kits. Or, you can bring your own (free order available from SHL). We will also offer you a rapid HIV test during your visit.

The service provides testing for a range of sexually transmitted infections including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C via samples you collect here. We can help you to register with the service and collect your blood sample. The service is available to people aged 16 and over who are living in SHL supported London boroughs.

Book an HIV + STI test in our office

For those who already have a test kit and prefer to have the test at home but don’t feel confident testing yourself, we can guide you through the process.

We have produced a short video for you in case you want to learn how to order the SHL testing kit and test yourself.
