It's now possible to test yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Customers can go online to the NHS shop and choose which comprehensive screening packing they require. Packages include Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV.
The kits are then delivered by post, discreetly (no need for a signature) and come with full instructions for performing the test. The customer sends the samples off to the lab and their results are received via text or phone within the next five working days.
A phone consultation with a health advisor is part of the service for all positive results and can be accessed as an added extra.
Whilst the home screening kit negates the need for some to go to a clinic, Tanya Percy, Service Manager at the Freedoms Shop, says: "We still recommend that anyone with symptoms does attend an NHS clinic."
During the ordering process, customers answer a series of questions, which ensures they get the package that meets their needs.
Kits are delivered the next working day and prices start from £29.99.
To get your hands on a kit, visit The Freedom Shop now.
