Early Detection Screen

What Is It?

Our Early Detection Screen is the earliest accredited test for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C available in the UK. The test looks for the presence of the virus itself in your body. It is reliable from just ten days after any potential exposure.

Which STIs are tested for?

  • The Early Detection Screen tests for:
  • HIV 1
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C

You can add on other tests to this screen, if you are looking for a comprehensive screen, then you may want to consider our Early Platinum Screen.

What do you need from me?

This screen needs a blood sample. There are no eating and drinking requirements before you have your test.

How do I get my results?

We will always call you with your results. If you would prefer something else please let us know. We can also email you or you can call us if you do not want to get a phone call. Please let the booking team know when you make your booking and we will pass your request onto the clinic.

What if I test positive?

The Early Detection Screen is a reliable test, and if you test positive then you will have found out at an early stage of infection. We will help you with the next steps which can include: confirmatory testing, referral to a specialist, and onward counselling to manage emotional and practical aspects. Our patients services team is available to help you make the right decision for you.
