Adult Health Services
RAPID staff are not doctors or nurses, and we do not keep clinical files that document your sexual behaviour or injecting practices.
We simply offer rapid HIV and syphilis testing without the full Q&A. We are now also offering chlamydia and gonorrhoea testing.
You will have an opportunity to ask questions and explore risk reduction strategies with a RAPID staff member who will respect your situation, and has a lot of knowledge about HIV and sexual health.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted and asked to complete a simple registration form.
A RAPID staff member will provide you with information on rapid HIV, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea testing that can provide results in only 20 minutes for HIV and syphilis, using a small drop of blood from a finger prick, and in 90 minutes for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. While the test is developing, you will have the opportunity to chat with a RAPID staff member about your risk for HIV and other sexually transmissible infections.
You only need to discuss what you feel comfortable discussing.
