We offer all clients HIV testing.

If HIV is detected early, treatment can be started which prevents damage to the immune system.  With early treatment, long-term effects of HIV including serious infections and other health problems can be prevented.

 Blood test

  • A blood test is the most common way to test for HIV
  • We offer same day HIV result on Monday to Thursday (if testing before 1pm)
  • The test provides a reliable result 4 weeks after exposure to HIV.

Point of care HIV test

  • A spot of blood is taken from pricking a finger with a tiny needle.
  • The result is available within twenty minutes
