What is the Instant testing process?
Better2Know’s trained Patient Services team will provide guidance and support throughout your patient journey, from the moment that you make an enquiry about a booking. Your experienced advisor will answer any questions you may have, and will arrange your confidential appointment at a time and date that suits you.
After arriving at our private STI clinic, a qualified nurse or clinician will explain your Instant screen before taking the necessary samples. The Better2Know Instant Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Screen requires swab samples, so there are no fasting or dietary requirements necessary. Your private clinician or nurse will conduct the pathology whilst you wait in the clinic waiting room, and results will be available shortly after.
When will I get my results?
The confidential results of your Instant Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea Screen will be ready in under 30 minutes, after you have given your samples. The medical practitioner will provide a Better2Know pathology report that will outline your results. This is useful to keep for your personal records.
What happens if I test positive?
Should your Instant screen for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea be positive for either or both infections, Better2Know’s clinic will provide a private prescription for the required medication, directly, at no extra cost. With our network of doctors in the UK, we can also schedule a private consultation either before or following your Instant test, so you can discuss your diagnosis in more detail.
The prescribed medication usually consists of a short course of antibiotics. For Gonorrhoea infections, you may have a single antibiotic injection followed by one antibiotic tablet. In some instances, it is possible to have a second tablet instead of an injection, should you prefer. Some Gonorrhoea infections may be resistant to antibiotics; therefore, it is recommended to have another test two weeks after you finish your medication to ensure the STI has cleared.
