Testing kits

The self-sampling kit consists of tests for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and HIV. If clinically indicated, the test kit will also ask for samples to test for hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

You can order a testing kit online from their website.

You can also visit your local sexual health clinic and use one of the kiosks to order a testing kit. Kits will be given to you on the day.

The kits are small and discreet - the box is sent in a plain plastic bag with no identifying markings or logos. The kit contains everything that you need, including a freepost envelope to provide SHL with your samples for test in their lab.

You will receive your results via the method that you chose when registering, for example, via a text message. You may also track and view results by logging into your SHL account at any time.
