Quality and Confidentiality – TakeATestUK

Quality and Confidentiality


At TakeATestUK we only use Public Health England’s UKAS-accredited pathology laboratories
(ISO15189:2012) to test your samples. This means that you can be assured you are receiving the same quality tests that you would receive in hospital or Sexual Health clinics.

To ensure you get the most accurate test results possible, we use only the highest quality kits available. We distribute these quickly and in plain packaging to an address of your choice – making our service easy, discrete and convenient as well as clinically excellent and entirely confidential.

All of your data is stored on our own entirely secure servers. These make use of NHS-standard encryption, meaning your data is as safe with us as it is with your own GP.

Expert doctors and scientists will interpret your results. For any reactive or inconclusive test results you will be contacted by one of our experienced HIV Health Advisors, who can explain your results and link you in to the most appropriate service near you for retesting or confirmation. Negative results will be texted to you directly.
