Blood Borne Virus Testing

HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are Blood Borne Viruses (BBVs) and are generally transmitted sexually or by direct exposure to infected blood or other body fluids contaminated with infected blood.

You can have confidential testing for BBVs at your GPs or at the services below:

A Dry Blood Spot (DBS) test can be carried out to test for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. The test is a quick finger prick which can be carried out at the various sites noted above. A follow up blood test may be required after a couple of months; this will be discussed and explained to you when you have the test.
