nearest STD/GUM clinic is 3 buses away
Had been wanting to take a HIV test for a while, but the nearest STD/GUM clinic is 3 buses away, the nearest walk in centre is over half an hour away and open only at weird times and my GP is already unhelpful on LGBT+ issues so I didn’t want to go there.
Getting the self-test through the post was, therefore, brilliant. I set it up, took the test and in 15 minutes had a negative result. Very easy, very quick. Plus, getting the test via the Terrence Higgins Trust meant I had immediate access to support should I need it – which fortunately today I didn’t.
All in all, a worthwhile experience.
