We can test for sexually transmitted infections and diseases while you have a cup of tea or coffee. Within 20 minutes of taking a blood or swab sample we can give you an answer to your concerns. If any tests have been identified as positive we will initiate treatment and advise you on how to manage the condition.
We can test for the following pathogens within 20 minutes – we show the amount of time from potential exposure one should wait to get an accurate result.
HIV and Syhphilis
Prep Clinics pre-exposure prophylaxis, PrEP, provides effective protection against HIV infection. Both treatment options are available to men and women. They are taken at different times relative to potential HIV exposure.
PrEP is taken following potential exposure to HIV, whereas PrEP is taken before any exposure to the virus. PrEP is often taken by the partners of HIV positive people, particularly those for whom the viral load is still detectable. PEP and PrEP are not suitable treatments for those who are HIV positive.
PREP Clinics are very discreet and 100% confidential. The staff are trained to the highest standards within sexual health services.
- PrEP is a course of tablets taken before sex to help stop people from getting HIV
- PrEP has been found to be effective in both regular and on demand doses – your nurse will be able to advise you on this
- If you are HIV negative and take your PrEP medication as instructed, you will not require PEP treatment as well
- PrEP will not protect you against any other STIs
If you are using PrEP it is advisable to get a full sexual health screen once every three months, so you can get tested for any other infections.
You can find out more about PrEP treatment by calling and speaking to a member of the sexual health team.
Choose my STD Test
In order to test accurately for all STDs, STIs and HIV, you need to leave a minimum window or incubation period in between any incident that you are concerned about, and the time of the test. If you test too soon, there is a possibility that the STD, STI or HIV may not show up on the test and you may test negative when you are not. It is important that you are honest with yourself and us about your incubation period. There is no maximum period, and you do not have to be tested on an exact date once you have reached the minimum time. Most people do not have any symptoms if they have an STI or STD so it is important to test regularly.

The only way to know (diagnose) if you have high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) is to have your blood pressure tested. Understanding your blood pressure numbers is key to controlling high blood pressure.
A blood test is a laboratory analysis performed on a blood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in the arm using a hypodermic needle, or via fingerprick. Multiple tests for specific blood components, such as a glucose test or a cholesterol test, are often grouped together into one test panel called a blood panel or blood work. Patients with needle phobia should make the receptionist aware of this so that additional time can be allocated.
