You can order a free home screening kit if you are 16 years old or over and have a Wiltshire postcode. This service is available to people without any symptoms and is a reliable and convenient way of testing without having to attend a clinic.
You can order one of these tests every 3 months. If you require one more frequently than this, you will need to discuss it with Salisbury Sexual Health. If you do NOT have a Wiltshire postcode, you will need to contact your local county Sexual Health Service via their website, please click on the counties below;
The home screening kits will be sent to you in blank packaging with no reference to sexual health screening.
If you have symptoms, we would prefer to see you at a sexual health clinic as more tests and treatments are available.
The home screening kits test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea either via a vaginal swab or a urine sample and for HIV and Syphilis via a blood sample. You may also be tested for Hepatitis B if you are high risk from your answers to the questions to request a home screening kit.
On occasions, you may also be asked to complete a throat or rectal swab for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea.
If you have any difficulties, please click here for more information on how to complete the samples.
There can sometimes be a delay before a test becomes positive after you have had sex. This is often referred to as the ‘window period’.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea – the window period is 2 weeks
HIV – the window period is 4 weeks
Syphilis – the window period is 12 weeks
If you live in Wiltshire and you are having difficulties in ordering a home screening kit, please call us on 01722 425120.
