Online Postal Screening Service

If you think you may have a sexually transmitted infection we run a postal screening kit for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and HIV in Bolton. Please note this is only available to people with a Bolton  or Salford postcode.

Please consider when ordering a kit which is best suited to your needs and fully complete as failure to do so costs the NHS thousands of ££££’s per year.

Please click here to order your free screening kit.

Once you have completed the order form a screening kit will be sent in discreet packaging to  your home address with full instructions on what to do and how to return it.

We will then contact you by text with your results and if you need any treatment we will arrange this at the Bolton SHINE clinic at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
