Test and Go Logo

This service is suitable for you if:

  • You are symptom-free (haven't noticed anything wrong)
  • You don't need treatment
  • You just want a routine sexual health check-up (tests for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis)
  • You do not need to see a nurse or doctor

What can you be tested for using this TAG service?

Chlamydia and gonorrhoea (Urine test for men, self-taken swab for women).
HIV and syphilis (blood test).

Are you worried about a specific sexual encounter?

If so, you may want to delay your visit. There's a time gap between catching an infection and it showing up on the tests. Testing earlier might miss something. This is called the window period. We'd recommend waiting 4 weeks to put your mind at rest.
