HIV testing

Discreet. Fast. Accurate.

Rapid HIV testing in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Sheffield.

We see hundreds of people each year who attend our clinics in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Sheffield with worries about possible HIV exposure and associated early HIV symptoms.

In the UK, the prevalence of HIV is actually very low, with around 120,000 out of the population 64 million people thought to be infected. That will give a change of meeting someone with HIV as around 1:600.

Unfortunately around a quarter of those infected are unaware that they are HIV positive.

The risks of infection are very real and the illness is severe and significant, but it is important to remember that the risk of HIV transmission from a sexual encounter with someone not known to be HIV positive amounts to a chance of around 2 in a million on any single occasion if the exposure risk occured in the UK.

Having said that, if you believe you have been exposed to HIV or have one or more of the symptoms associated with the syndrome, it is obviously sensible to seek medical help and you should consider getting a HIV test.

Instant HIV testing is normally a matter of putting people's minds at rest and alleviating anxiety.

Over 99% of the tests we undertake give a NEGATIVE result and offer immediate peace of mind to those concerned.

Instant HIV tests are available from day 28 after the risky exposure.

However the earliest HIV testing can be performed after an exposure is day 10, and this involves sending a blood sample to the laboratory. This test is known as a 10-day HIV DNA PCR test.
