Test and Go
The Test and Go service is for people who have no symptoms and are 18 and over, who have had a new sexual health risk since their last test. It can take up to two weeks for chlamydia and gonorrhoea to show up in a test, four weeks for HIV and twelve weeks for syphilis.
You have to attend clinic for this service. This is delivered by a non registered professional, the tests available are for HIV, syphilis (blood test) chlamydia and gonorrhoea (urine sample or vaginal swab).
Test and Go appointments are available by phoning the booking line on 01904 721111. If you require contraception, advice, have symptoms or require vaccinations, Test and Go appointments are not appropriate for you please book a nurse appointment via the booking line.
If you attend a test and go appointment and have symptoms, require contraception, or need vaccinations, you will be rebooked into an appointment with a nurse. This may mean returning on another day.

Testing For Those With Symptoms
It can be tricky to determine what symptoms might mean that you have a sexually transmitted infection.
Typical symptoms for people who have a vagina include:
Pain in lower tummy
Blisters on genitals
Changes to discharge
Typical symptoms for people who have a penis include:
Pain in testicles
Discharge from penis
Blisters on genitals
If you have any of these symptoms please call 01904 721111 for an appointment or see our clinics and services page for appointment times.
If you have not had sex or if you have not had a change of partner then your symptoms are less likely to be due to a sexually transmitted infection and your GP might be the best place to go for advice.
