The pop-up offers free, confidential full STI screening – including HIV, Hepatitis, Syphilis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea – for asymptomatic patients (those with no symptoms).

These sessions at the Moor Market are in addition to STI screening available in our clinics (Royal Hallamshire Hospital and Firth Park Clinic) and via our community outreach service (scroll further down for more information).

Sexual Health Sheffield provides a range of free and confidential services including free testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV.

There are many different types of STIs and they can affect people differently. Some STIs have symptoms including discomfort and irritation or can make it painful going to the toilet or having sex. Other STIs may have long-term effects on your health, including your ability to have children (infertility) and some STIs have no symptoms at all.

If you are sexually active, a regular sexual health check-up is recommended – especially if you change partners.

National HIV Home Testing Scheme

Terrence Higgins Trust have launched a free national HIV home testing scheme.
