The details of the online application for an STI test may show that a chlamydia and gonorrhoea self-screening test is sufficient. However, if you wish to be tested for other STIs in addition to chlamydia and gonorrhoea, you should visit your GP.
Only if the intake assessment shows that you are eligible for this test, will we offer you the following ways in which you can be tested for this:
1. If the details provided in your intake assessment show that a self-screening test is sufficient, you have the option of collecting this test from Reception. (NB: you can only do so once you have completed the intake assessment and have been given this option)
This self-screening test can be collected between the hours of 09:00 and 11:30, and 14:00 and 16:30 Monday to Friday and/or between 18:30 and 21:00 on Thursday evenings.
You can take the test yourself in a toilet specially set up for this purpose in the Outpatient Clinic. The results of this test will be available within three to ten days. Only you will be able to access these results via a secure internet page. If the results show that treatment is required, you will, of course, need to visit the Outpatient Clinic again.
2. You can take this self-test in the Outpatient Clinic once you have completed the intake assessment with the doctor's assistant. You can make an appointment for this using the appointment button on the right-hand side of this page.
3. You can take this self-test in the Outpatient Clinic in combination with a discussion with a sexual health nurse. The aim of the (Sense) surgery is for you to be able to ask any questions you may have in connection with sexual health counselling, including safe sex, contraception, etc. You can make an appointment for this using the appointment button on the right-hand side of this page.
Please take your identity card along with you to the STI Outpatient Clinic, as a check will be carried out to ensure that you are under 25 years of age. NB.: A limited number of self-screening tests are available each day.
