The Platinum and Early Platinum Screens for STIs and STDs are our most comprehensive screens.
Both screens look for the same STIs. The Early Platinum Screen uses a different testing method for some of the tests. This means it can look for the presence of HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C earlier (sooner after potential exposure). Our booking team will help you to book the right platinum screen for you.
What does the Platinum Screen test for?
Our Platinum Screens test for:
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- Herpes (Current Infection)
What samples are needed?
The screen needs a blood and urine sample. There are no painful or embarrassing swabs required. There are no fasting requirements, but please make sure that you can produce a urine sample during your appointment.
How will I get results?
We will call you with your results when they are all back from the laboratory. If you would prefer a different method (email, SMS, or to phone us) please let us know when you book your appointment.
What if I test positive?

Our patient services team is available at evenings and weekends to help you with answers to your questions and to discuss options available to you. Most STIs are curable, we will help you to get the medicine that you need quickly and discreetly.
