Free HIV Home Sampling HIV Testing By Post

Latest news  !! You can now get a free home sampling HIV test kit from the Crescent by post ! Visit the website http://www.thecrescent.org.uk or email testing@thecrescent.org.uk for more information!

With this kit you can take the test at your convenience, post the sample to the laboratory, the Crescent will deliver your results to you between 24 – 48 hours (from receipt of your sample at the lab). If the result indicates that you may have HIV a confirmatory test is necessary at the Watford Sexual Health Centre (or another if you prefer). We will support you throughout the process of course.

If you would like to take the test at our centre in St Albans this can be arranged with appropriate support throughout the process as you require.

This is a free service and completely confidential. If you would like to know more about the service please do feel free to email or call us. You can also pick up a kit from our centre in Russell Avenue St Albans if you wish.

Now there really is an easy way to check your HIV status !
