Here at Better2Know, we understand that getting tested for a sexually transmitted infection can be a somewhat disconcerting experience. That’s why we strive to make your journey with us as simple and stress-free as possible. Each one of our anonymous STI tests can be carried out individually, or as part of a combination of tests, known as a screen. All of our tests and screens have been meticulously put together by a panel of medical specialists, and are designed to meet your personal requirements.
You can either make your booking online, or by calling the free telephone number above. Our friendly Patient Services team are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to answer your questions and organise your booking. If you would prefer to arrange your confidential appointment online, select the Book Now button at any time, day or night, and follow the instructions.
With hundreds of clinics in the UK and around the world, Better2Know is the global leader in private STI testing services. All our clinics operate at the highest possible standards, with many performing same or next day appointments for your convenience. Visit our website to locate your nearest testing facility and opening times. We also have a Home Testing service, whereby the patient collects the relevant sample/s themselves. Home Testing includes a variety of tests and screens, which can be easily self-administered from the comfort of your own home.
The Better2Know Everywhere service offers an alternative to our clinic and home testing options, allowing you to decide exactly where and when you would like to be tested. With this bespoke service, a private nurse will visit you at a location of your preference, testing you quickly and efficiently for a comprehensive array of STIs. Alternatively, if you are unable to get tested at one of our clinics, and are uncomfortable with the idea of a nurse coming to your home or place of work, why not visit one of our nationwide nurse stations? At this private appointment, your Better2Know nurse will swiftly and discreetly collect your samples, before sending them off to be tested.
Those patient’s visiting a clinic, or using the Everywhere Service, will be seen by a qualified clinician. They will take your respective blood, swab or urine samples before sending them to our CPA accredited laboratory for fast, accurate analysis. For home testers, a prepaid envelope is included in the kit you receive. All you need to do is pop your sample in the post, and it will be analysed at our fully certified laboratory.
Better2Know also conducts Instant testing for six of the most common infections, with results available while you wait in the clinic. Using simple blood and swab samples, we provide rapid results for HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. This popular testing option is available across the country, giving you a full picture of your sexual health status in under half an hour. Please see our prices page for a complete list of our STI testing options.
Results usually take between one and five working days from receipt of the sample by the laboratory, depending on your selected test or screen. Unless, of course, you have already received your results through our Instant Testing service.
To access your results at any time, simply login to the secure patient area on our website. Additionally, Better2Know will confirm your results by telephone, email or SMS once they are all ready. Should your test come back reactive, we can arrange a telephone consultation with one of our experienced doctors. Furthermore, we will either conduct confirmatory testing at no extra charge, or provide you with a prescription for the treatment you require, depending on the infection you have tested positive for.
Testing is the only way to be certain of your sexual health status, thus protecting yourself as well as any current or future partners. So, stay safe and get yourself tested – it is always Better2Know. Call us today or click the button above to make your appointment.
