HIV Test Home Test Kit


Availability: In stock SKU: PT7457


This test will detect HIV types I and II, and the p24 antigen (an early marker of HIV) using a finger-prick blood sample.

Is this HIV test accurate?
This blood test is a very accurate test (99.8% 28 days after any incident you are concerned about, rising to 99.9% after 3 months). The test allows you to test for HIV types I and II and the p24 antigen (an early marker of HIV) from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
How does this HIV test work?
This test needs a small blood sample. After you have bought your test online, Better2Know will post your discreet HIV test pack to your home (the postal pack is plain so no one will know what it is). Open the pack, where you will find a form, three finger prick lancets, a small gold topped tube, wipes and a return envelope. In addition, Better2Know will email you a copy of the sample collection instruction leaflet, which will give you instructions on how to collect your sample. It is important that you follow the instructions on the leaflet carefully. You will get an email when your results are ready, but you can log on and check on line whenever you like.
When will my test kit arrive?
Orders placed before 11am, Monday to Friday, will post it out to you by first class the same day. Depending upon where you live, your HIV test should arrive the next working day or the day after.
How long before I get my HIV test result?
The results of your HIV test should be ready within one working day from when your sample arrives at the laboratory.
What happens if my HIV test is positive?
Better2Know will call you if your result is positive and arrange for you to have a second test (which is included in the price). If your second test is positive then Better2Know can help you decide where you want to be referred to for treatment and any other support you need. This can include talking to an HIV specialist consultant and the Terrence Higgins Trust.
Is testing for HIV through Better2Know confidential?
Yes. Your results and details are 100% confidential and Better2Know will not inform your GP or anyone without your permission.
How long should I wait after an encounter before getting an HIV test?
You should wait at least 28 days since any incident you are concerned about before getting an HIV test. If you test before this time, the HIV test may not be as accurate as it can be.
Please note: These tests are provided and carried out by Better2Know who will respond with the results.

FAQs about the Better2Know service

If your order is placed before 11am on a working day, then it will be sent the same day. Otherwise it will be sent on the next working day.
Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready. They do not sell on or email you any other marketing materials, that is why they do not ask you to opt in or out of anything.
No, but the postman does need to know where to deliver the kit to. As long as you use a name that will get the kit to you, then they do not need your real name.
It will arrive in plain white envelope with your typed name and address on it.
