National HIV Home Testing Scheme
The Terrence Higgins Trust provides a national HIV home testing scheme. Self testing kits can be ordered from their website and will be delivered in an unmarked package to any UK address. The test involves taking a small blood sample from a finger prick and you will be able to read the result yourself within 15 minutes.
