Testing for HIV needn't be a chore

Order a test

We will send you a test free of charge, in an unmarked package, to any UK address. You can also choose to pick it up from a local HubBox Click and Collect point – there are more than 4,000 around the UK.

The test involves taking a small blood sample from a finger prick. Follow the simple instructions and you will be able to read the result yourself within 15 minutes.

To order your free self testing kit, please fill in the your details below. We will share your name and address securely with our fulfilment partner Biosure UK in order to supply your order. They will only use this data to post you the testing kit.

This test is for people who do not know their HIV status, or whose last test was negative. If you are on PrEP, please read this information for PrEP users first.

Why test?

Around 8% of people living with HIV in the UK don't know they have it. The only way to know your HIV status is to get tested. Testing puts you in control of your health.

If you have HIV, the sooner you find out and start treatment, the better it is for your health. Effective HIV treatment means you can expect to live as long as anyone else and can prevent you from passing the virus on.

Remember: a negative test result in the past is no longer accurate if you've taken risks since.
