- Finger prick blood test testing for HIV, Syphilis, Hep B&C

- Urine test- Chlamydia & gonorrhoea

Please note results are NOT instant so nobody will receive a diagnosis there and then. Results will be sent via text message within 2 weeks. For those who do not wish to test on the day, they scan a QR code and order a home testing kit. 

Everyone who gets involved in the testing will receive a free goodie bag!
