Get tested for HIV close to home, get the results in 15 minutes

HIV Testing Week 2018

The council is offering residents extra opportunities to be tested at community venues across the borough until World Aids Day on 1 December.  The nearest ones to the ECCO area are listed below.

One in every eight people who are HIV positive in the UK do not know that they have the virus, which means they are not accessing the support available or the treatment to protect their health and prevent HIV being passed on to anyone else.

Getting tested for HIV is a quick and confidential finger prick test, with the result available within 15 minutes. Although the number of people testing for HIV is increasing, there are still many who receive a late diagnosis by not getting tested soon enough.

Treatment now available for HIV is very effective and not only restores people to good health but also helps reduce the onward transmission of the virus.

People can also have an HIV test throughout the year at Croydon University Hospital, at GP surgeries and other clinical settings. Postal test kits can also be ordered at any time.
