A number of patients across Scotland and England may have been given the incorrect results from their syphilis STD tests for tests performed November 2010 and September 2011. Better2Know does not use the laboratory where the wrong results came from, and we want to reassure our patients that your STD test results were correct.
There are about 5,000 new cases of syphilis in the UK each year. If you are worried about your STD test result, Better2Know can provide you a syphilis test with results one day after the sample is received in the laboratory. We have over 80 clinics across the UK, where you can get STD tests and an HIV test.
Regular testing for all STDs, including HIV is encouraged if you are sexually active.
