How Do I Get My Results?

Depending on your chosen method of contact, the clinic will text, email, or post you the result of your tests within 2 weeks, regardless of whether they’re positive or negative. If you do not hear back from them after 3 weeks please contact them on 0300 020 0027.

Where Else Can I Get Tested?

If the SU isn’t running a Drop-In Sexual Health Clinic soon, and you would like to get tested, you can visit a clinic in Coventry or Leamington Spa. Your Local GP will also be able to offer some testing for STIs if requested.
