Home STI (sexually transmitted infections) Testing Kits
Sexual Health London is a new online sexual health service which is ideal for people who want a straightforward and convenient test without needing to visit the clinic. You are eligible for this service if you have no symptoms, are over 16 and live in a London Borough (including Kingston upon Thames).
Just register for SHL and complete the online consultation.
If the service is right for you, a free kit will be posted out so you can collect your samples and return them to the lab for testing – results will be with you in just a few days.
