Online testing (self-test kits)

What tests can I order online?

Our online kits can test you for chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HIV. They can also test you for syphilis, but may not be suitable if you’ve been treated for syphilis before. More information about these infections is available below:

Please only order the tests that you are going to do – your results may be delayed if you do not complete and return all of your tests.

Been treated for syphilis before?

If you want another syphilis test, our online kits may not be right for you. It takes more blood to test for syphilis if you've had treatment for it in the past - the sample returned via the kit may not provide enough blood for us to give you a result.

Please email us for advice or call our main phone line.

You will be asked a series of questions to check which STI kit is best for you. We can provide kits whatever your sexuality and gender identity. We sometimes might need to contact you first, just to check your exact needs and make sure the right kit is sent. If you have any worries, it is always best to book a telephone consultation to discuss these.

How do I do my own tests?

All kits are supplied with clear instruction leaflets. You can also view online versions of the leaflets below. If you need any help or advice, please contact us.
