Getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is free, easy and confidential. 

The best time to get a test is 2 weeks after you have put yourself at risk (this is the time in which most infections can be detected).

There are various clinics that run within our service:

  • Queue and wait: a walk in service for patients who are happy to queue and wait to be seen. (These clinics can be extremely busy. Emergencies will always be given priority - so you may not always be seen in the order in which you arrived. The nature of these clinics means that it is not always possible to see all patients - alternative clinics to attend will be offered.)
  • Appointment: for patients with pre-booked appointments.
  • Online: (Chlamydia, Syphilis, HIV and Gonorrhoea only.)
  • CHOICES: specialist clinics for younger patients aged 24 and under.
  • Male only: specialist clinic for male patients run at LSH @ Haymarket Health in Leicester.
  • SHACC: clinics based within local surgeries in Leicester City.
  • Sauna: free drop in clinics for homosexual and bisexual men based within local Saunas.
  • Screen and Go: a service we offer to those who have no symptoms or signs of having an infection, but would still like to be tested for: Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Syphillis, Hepatitis B (if required), Hepatitis C (if required).
