In 2016, Public Health England revealed that Manchester had the country’s highest prevalence of HIV outside of London and the South East. And it’s not just HIV – in 2014 alone, almost 1.5% of the city’s inhabitants were diagnosed with an STI. As Manchester’s cosmopolitan community continues to increase, so too does the threat of sexually transmitted infections.
At Better2Know, we understand that getting a sexual health test can be a troublesome time. You want discreet and efficient results, fast – that’s why we offer same or next day appointments across Manchester, including Instant testing at selected locations in the city.
With results available in under half an hour, Better2Know’s Instant testing service is an excellent option for those who need answers immediately. Available at our private facilities in Deansgate and the City Centre, we offer rapid results for six harmful infections, including HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Our Instant tests can be performed individually, or as part of a combination of tests, known as a screen, with results provided whilst you wait in the clinic.
The Instant tests for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, use small blood samples to detect infection. Our Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea tests, on the other hand, require swab samples for both men and women. Your Instant test or screen will be undertaken by a qualified clinician, who will collect your samples and answer any questions you may have.
Should you test positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea, Better2Know will provide you with an immediate prescription for the antibiotics you need. Furthermore, we will run confirmatory testing at no additional charge if there is a positive result for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C. Upon receiving your results, you will also be issued with a signed and completed copy of the Rapid Test Results Report. With a network of doctors situated throughout Manchester and around the UK, we can also arrange specialist consultations either before your test or after you have received your results.
