Who is this test for?

This test is designed for anyone who believes they’ve come into contact with the Herpes I (HSV1) and wants to get checked. It’s also useful for anyone who has cold sores and suspects it may be caused by Herpes.

How is the test carried out?

The test is carried out using a blood sample which will be taken at our clinic location by a clinician at one of our partner clinics. They will then undergo the testing process and gain your results whilst you wait, in under 30 minutes.

Turnaround Time

This test takes 30 minutes to gain accurate results.

When can I take this test?

Please be advised that this test will only offer the advised level of accuracy 14 days after potential exposure. If you believe you came into contact sooner than 14 days then you may wish to contact our customer services team who can discuss your options with you.

As this is an Instant Test, offering results whilst you wait, this test is only available by visiting one of our specially selected clinics. You’ll be assisted by a clinician in collecting your sample who will talk you through the process.

1. Book your test

To book this test, simply press the ‘Select This Test’ button above. You’ll then be taken to our booking page where you can choose the best clinic for your needs.

2. Arrive at the clinic

Our clinics are all based in a discreet setting and because many of them are general health clinics, there’s no reason why anyone will know that you’re there for a sexual health screening. Just let the receptionist know who you are upon arrival.

3. Your blood sample

This test requires a blood sample for accurate results. The blood sample is a simple finger prick sample which is then dropped on a testing panel before we add the reagent to it.

4. Now we’ll take care of your results

Once you’ve deposited your samples you’ll be asked to wait in the clinic waiting room whilst the reagent has time to react to your samples. The clinician will then notify you of your results.
