There are different ways of getting tested, some of which may be more convenient than coming to see us in clinic. There are times when we really would prefer to see you, for example if you have symptoms or have had sex with someone who has an STI.

Testing in clinic
We run clinics at several different SHiP locations in the Plymouth area.

Online STI test kits
We offer an online STI test kit service. You take your own samples and post them back to us in a Freepost envelope. We will let you know your results by text within 10 working days. You can test for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and HIV using this service.

Pick up a chlamydia test kit (under 25s)
If you are under 25, you can pick up a chlamydia test kit from the Zone or any of these enhanced service pharmacies. Your own GP might be an enhanced service GP and also offer these kits. You take your own sample and post it back to us in a Freepost envelope. We will let you know your results within 10 working days. This test is for chlamydia only.

If you are under 25 and have previously used the freetest.me service, please use the online STI test kits (above).

Online HIV-only test
This service is temporarily suspended, and should return in the next 2-3 weeks.
