- An increased need to urinate more frequently
Better2Know’s private sexual health clinic in Halifax is open six days a week for your convenience, with evening appointments available during the week. Once you have arrived at your confidential appointment, one of our qualified clinicians will see you to explain the testing process and to collect your samples. Following this, your samples will then be sent to Better2Know’s CPA accredited laboratory in the UK for fast, accurate testing.
Better2Know’s Everywhere service in Halifax provides an STI testing alternative. We will send a trained nurse to a location of your choice for sample collection. This can be your home, place of work, a close friend or relative’s house, our pre-approved nurse station in Halifax, or a local hotel. You still have access to our range of STI tests, screens and confidential support from Better2Know’s sexual health advisors. For more information, get in touch with our dedicated advisors today.
Your results will be reported one to five working days after your sample has arrived at Better2Know’s certified laboratory. The results time depends on the tests you choose. Better2Know’s experienced Patient Services team will contact you once all your results are available, unless you specify otherwise. You can also monitor the progress of your confidential results using Better2Know’s secure patient area on our website. This online service gives you access to our exclusive STI factsheets and, if you test positive, our anonymous partner notification service. If you test positive for a sexually transmitted infection, Better2Know can help you access the treatment you need by organising private doctor’s consultations or by referring you to a specialist.
