Home Testing Kits

Have you got a manic life and struggling to fit health care in?
Prefer to take testing in an environment more suited to you?
Are you a gay or bisexual man aged 16 or over living in Greater Manchester?

Then the Dry Blood Spot HIV Home Testing Kit is perfect for you!

The Lesbian and Gay Foundation (LGF) know that if you’re a busy guy trying to fit in everything that you have going on in your life; why should you compromise your sexual health?

What is it?
The Dry Blood Spot HIV sampling kit comprises of;
• Alcohol prep pads (to clean your finger)
• Two lancets (these are similar to those used for testing your blood sugar levels - it’s just a little prick)
• A blood collection card (this is what you’ll put your blood on so it can be tested)
• A plaster to cover your finger

Simply pop into The Lesbian and Gay Foundation’s Office, Number 5, Richmond Street, Manchester M1 3HF, Monday to Friday from 10am to 7pm. LGF will ask you a few questions to see that you meet the criteria for the scheme and if you do then you’ll be given you a kit there and then.

Or you can order a kit online here: www.lgf.org.uk/hometesting and there’s an LGF Quickie on that page showing you how to do the test.
