We'll provide a HIV blood test and send it to our UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis. Although HIV is more common in Sub-Saharan Africa it’s present throughout the world and remains underdiagnosed in the UK. Symptoms can vary. After an initial flu-like illness you don't have any further symptoms in HIV until the later stages. It's therefore vital that you get a test for HIV if you have any concerns.
