The whole process of rapid HIV testing is quick and simple and can be done in a few easy steps:

  1. Contact the sexual health team on 0121 643 0821 and book your test.
  2. We will take some brief details form you when you come in and give you some pre-test information about the test so that you can give your informed consent to be tested.
  3. We will perform the simple finger prick rapid HIV test and give you your results.
  4. We will give your some post-test information and offer you any further support or follow up which you may need.

The whole process usually takes 20 minutes.

Our Guided Home HIV/STI Testing service enables you to regularly screen yourself for HIV and STI’s from the comfort of your own home. This can be useful while usual services are running at a reduced capacity.

How it works:

  • Call us on 0121 643 0821 to request a HIV/STI testing kit.
  • We will post the testing kits to you along with some simple instructions to follow.
  • Once you receive your testing kits, call us to arrange a suitable time to do your test.
  • One of our trained sexual health staff will video call you and guide you through doing the test and explain the results to you.

Our staff can answer any questions or concerns you may have and can make any referrals to clinical services if needed.

Covid-19 Changes:

Nurse and doctor led clinics are currently not running from the LGBT centre until further notice.

If you have symptoms of an STI or require treatment, please call our sexual team on 0121 643 0821 who are able to refer you to the appropriate service.


We can offer sexual health related support sessions with our sexual health promotion team.

Confidential, Free and Professional sessions can be offered to you if there are any issues that you would like to discuss with one of the team. Issues may be related to your sexuality, gender identity, sexual health or health status, or something else.

Through these one to one sessions we can help you to explore your issues of concern further and may be able to refer you on to other services or activities which may be of benefit.
