HIV & STI testing services in North Yorkshire
We offer fast, free and confidential HIV tests. We also offer home testing kits to gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men only. These kits test for HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia.
These tests involve taking your own samples and sending them off in the post.
We are offering face to face HIV/STI testing. Here's what to expect when booking and attending your test:
All tests must be booked online.
A pre-test discussion will be held over the phone before you are invited to the office.
Please wear a face covering when entering our buildings (we can provide these for you if you haven't got one).
Please arrive to your appointment on time and do not bring others into the building. There will be no waiting rooms available.
