HIV Test Kits are available in Scotland for free and also on sale
Posted on: April 24 2015, 02:35 pm

From the 27th Aoril 2015 HIV self testing kits are available from  www.hivselftest.co.uk  the cost is 29.95
FREE HIV testing kits are also available from Terrence Higgins Trust from -https://www.tht.org.uk/sexual-health/About-HIV/HIV-postal-test

BioSure instant result self-test kits have received the European quality and safety 'CE' mark and will go on sale from Monday 27 April, online at www.hivselftest.co.uk.The sale and distribution of instant result test kits carrying the CE mark was made legal last year, but until now no kit had actually gained approval to carry it. So, these kits are the first instant result kits to go on sale legally in the UK. HIV Scotland has worked with the national Self-Testing Action Group as part of the Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Framework Executive Leads Group to develop resources and information for the public and for workers on the new kits. Copies of these resources have been circulated via the Executive Leads group, but key information will also be available at www.hivscotland.com shortly this afternoon for anyone who has not yet seen it. HIV Scotland has also prepared a set of resources and templates for organisations wishing to communicate via media or other channels about the new kits - including a communications plan, key messages, a press release template, a suggested briefing for spokespeople and interviewees on the subject, suggested web article and fact sheet text, and suggested social media posts. For copies or further information, please contact us at info@hivscotland.com or 0131 558 3713, or visit www.hivscotland.com. Erin Gray, Senior Communications and Media Officer, HIV Scotland
