See a GP

Most STI and HIV testing in NSW is conducted through General Practice (GPs). It’s a good idea for everyone who is sexually active to get a regular check-up. We recommend you see a GP for this.

Don’t have a regular GP?
Ask our nurses about the Friends of SSHC GP list for suggestions of GPs who do a lot of sexual health testing.

Dried Blood Spot (DBS)

A DBS test is a free, easy and accurate way to test for HIV and/or hepatitis C without having to come into the clinic.

The DBS test works by putting a few drops of blood from your finger on a test card and leaving to dry.

Check out the DBS website for detailed instructions and information on how to order.
