HIV & STI testing

We offer HIV and STI screening for anyone over 16 and living in Rotherham.

COVID-19 UPDATE: 

As lockdown ends, we will be continuing our practices to keep our staff and service users safe: 

  • Please wear a face covering when entering our buildings (we can provide these for you if you haven't got one). 
  • Hand sanitising stations will be available. 
  • We will clean regular touch points between appointments. 
  • Please do not attend if you have COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been in contact with COVID-19 in the past 72 hours. We will give you a call before your appointment to confirm this. 

We are continuing with these practices so that we can increase the number of appointments available. Appointments will need to be booked in advance at bookatest.mesmac.co.uk

We are still offering 1-2-1 support over the phone. To access this, please contact:

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.
