Sexual health testing
The team provides testing for sexually transmitted infections for people who do not have symptoms.
These are non-invasive (most are taken by the person themselves) and screen for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, syphilis, Hepatitis B & C.
There is also a full range of site-specific tests including rectal, throat, vagina and urine samples available.
The Health Shop service leads on blood borne virus testing/treatment for Nottingham Recovery Network, specialising in Hepatitis B, C and HIV. The team has excellent links with Nottingham University hospital staff and provides support to anyone needing follow-on treatment. They are advanced venepuncturists, and offer testing in a variety of ways including finger prick (dried blood spot), self-venepuncture and venous samples.
