About us – TakeATestUK

About us

 offers you the peace of mind that comes from regular sexual health testing in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Our postal STI testing service is discreet, comprehensive and convenient. We offer tests for a range of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Blood Borne Viruses (BBVs). We work with the NHS and Public Health England, and we’re managed by the national charity Saving Lives.

When you use TakeATestUK, you can have total confidence in our clinical and scientific expertise. We’re a gold standard service designed by specialists, and we have selected the best organisations to work with in order to offer our tests.

Whether you regularly test yourself and simply enjoy the convenience of not having to attend a clinic, or have never tested before and are a little nervous, our postal kits are sent direct to the address you supply in plain, unidentifiable packaging.

Simply take your own samples – each STI or BBV may require a different sample – and send them off to our state-of-the-art laboratory. You will then receive your result by text – or, if there’s anything to worry about, you’ll be contacting over the telephone by one of our fully-trained NHS health advisors.

Our kits come complete with easy to understand instructions, and every step – from the contexts of the text messages you receive to the care we take with your data – is totally confidential. There really is no better mix of privacy and clinical excellence available from any other postal kit provider.
