HIV & STI testing
Our HIV & STI testing services in Rotherham
Regular drop-in sessions
We run the following HIV and STI testing drop-in sessions for anyone aged 16 or over at our Rotherham Office, 11 Mansfield Road, S60 2DR:
- Every Tuesday 10am-2pm,
- Every Wednesday 4pm-7pm (Screen 'n' Go/Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea only),
- Every Thursday 3pm-7pm,
- First Saturday of the month 11am-3pm.
We offer testing for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and pregnancy.
HIV/Syphilis results come back in 1 minute and can tell you whether you had HIV or Syphilis 12 weeks ago. It is strongly recommended to test 12 weeks after your last sexual act (oral, anal & vaginal) so the tests will give you a definitive result. You are more than welcome to test within the 12 week window period but the result will only be accurate after 12 weeks.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea screening involves a self-taken sample (no examination required). The tests are accurate at 2 weeks post exposure.
If you have an appointment please arrive on time - no more than 15 minutes early or 15 minutes late. If you arrive extremely early or late we cannot guarantee that a member of staff will be available.

Any gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, and Black African men and women, 16 years and over can order a HIV sampling kit online and have it delivered to your address in England. With the kit, you take a simple finger prick blood test and send it back to a laboratory for results and a referral to local confidential clinical and support services should this be required. Please check to see if you live in one of the 90+ local authorities where this service is now available.
The tests are provided by Test.HIV and can be ordered online from www.test.hiv.
