Postal testing

This is a different type of test, sometimes called 'home sampling', and involves posting a blood sample to a laboratory for testing.

If you live in the Essex County Council area, you can use the postal ordering service on our website to order a free HIV postal test.

If you live in England, you may be able to order a free postal test from the website, depending on whether it is funded for you in your local area.

In person

Our Service Finder has an extensive database of sexual health services throughout the UK, including those offering HIV testing.
