New Service Home Sampling HIV Testing

We now will be offering a home sampling HIV testing service, simply call for a kit by post or drop in to collect a testing kit, follow the instructions, post your sample back to the laboratory and you results will be delivered to your by the Crescent.

If reactive (positive) we will fast track an appointment for a confirmatory test at the Watford Sexual Health Centre (or alternative clinic of your chosing if you prefer) with appropriate support throughout.

If you wish you can take the test at the Crescent, we will arrange transport to the laboratory, and delivery of your results to you.

Whatever information you share with us is not passed to any other, it is completely free and totally confidential.

The latest statistics indicate that at least 24% of people with HIV do not even know that they have the virus as it can take up to 10 years before symptoms appear. The earlier a diagnosis is made, the better the outcome for the individual concerned and also prevents passing the virus on.

So if you want to know more, have a chat about testing, or any other issue related to HIV please feel free to get in touch by phone, email or just call in to see us during opening hours.
