Better2Know’s Instant Six Screen provides rapid STI test results for six common infections. These include HIV, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea and Hepatitis B and C. This comprehensive screening option is suitable for those who have achieved at least four weeks, or 28 days, of incubation. The incubation period is the time between the incident you are concerned about and testing for infection. This is Better2Know’s most extensive Instant screen and has been put together by our sexual health specialists to give you a fast and highly accurate picture of your STI status.

What is the Instant testing process?
You can book your Instant Six Screen in the UK online or over the phone. It is entirely up to you. Our expert Patient Services team can schedule your anonymous appointment at a private facility of your choice. The qualified nurse or clinician at your appointment will explain your Instant test to you before collecting both your swab and blood samples for analysis. Blood samples are taken from a small finger prick to ensure a simple and quick collection. With a Better2Know Instant test or screen, the pathology is performed whilst you wait in the clinic. You will receive your results shortly after being tested.
When will I get my results?
The confidential results of your Instant Six Screen will be presented within half an hour of your test. You will also be given a signed and completed copy of the Better2Know Rapid Test Results Report, to be used for your personal records.
What happens if my Instant test is positive?
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea infections are both curable with the right course of treatment. We are able to provide you with a prescription for the necessary medication should you test positive for either infection. If your Instant Six Screen is reactive for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, you will be eligible for additional, confirmatory testing, free of charge. With a network of experienced doctors across the UK, we can also schedule private consultations either before your Instant test or following your results. Alternatively, you can take your results to your own doctor or sexual health provider.
