What will Happen when I Visit?
What Happens Next?
• If the results are negative, you will receive a text message / letter within 2 weeks after your visit to confirm the negative results.
• If any of the tests indicate possible infection, you will be contacted by a sexual health advisor or nurse within 7 – 10 days to arrange an appointment to discuss the results, receive treatment and arrange for your partner to attend.
• Please note the commonest infection we might find would be chlamydia which is treatable with antibiotics.
• Treatment, if required, is free.
About the HIV Test
Will having an HIV test affect my life insurance? • Most insurance forms only ask if you have ever tested positive to an HIV test, not whether you have had one. • If your HIV test is positive, it may affect future life insurance. However, we can advise you about companies that deal with this.This test is confidential and no-one will know you have had it. • GUM records are separate from your own doctor’s records. © Department of integrated sexual health Cardiff Royal Infirmary
