It's easy to get tested for HIV
Our HIV and STI testing is free, fast and totally confidential
- No appointment is necessary for our scheduled testing clinics. Please phone ahead if you are unable to attend a clinic and require a test outside clinic hours. Availability to offer walk in tests is very limited.
- If you test with us, you will receive your HIV results in minutes, and your STI screens within 2 weeks maximum.
- Please ensure you arrive 30 minutes before the end of the session.
Note: We cannot dispense PEP/ PrEP, emergency or hormonal contraception, provide treatment for STIs or provide STI screening if you have symptoms. For these services please contact your local G.U.M clinic. If you live in east London, your local sexual health services can be found at: Ambrose King Centre (Whitechapel), Sir Ludwig Guttman Centre (Stratford), Clifden Centre (Homerton) and Outpatients East (Barking).
We also cannot test people together.
