Sample must be received in the laboratory within 24 hours of sample taking
This is only a small sample of the many sexual health tests which DocTap provide. Our expert doctors can advise you during your consultation on the most appropriate STI checks for your circumstances. View all blood tests.
* Please note that the lab results are estimates and can vary. Tests taken after 1pm will be classified as the following day for timing purposes. You will receive a written analysis of your results within 1 working day of them being available from the laboratory. It is often possible for the doctor who reviews your results to be the same doctor who requested them. This is considered medical best practice but will add an additional 1 working day to the timings. If you have multiple tests then we shall wait to report on them together unless the first results highlight any reason for concern. Sometimes the preliminary results will determine that additional tests need to be carried out on your sample. If this is the case then your results will take longer. There is no additional charge for this service.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that replicates and damages the cells in your immune system and weakens your ability to fight everyday infections and disease
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) describes a number of life-threatening infections and illnesses that only occur when your immune system has been damaged by the HIV virus. AIDS cannot be transmitted from one person to another, but the HIV virus can.
There is currently no cure for HIV, however there are effective drug treatments that enable the majority of people with the virus to live a long and healthy life.
HIV is found in semen, vaginal and anal fluids, blood, and breast milk. It cannot be transmitted through sweat, urine or saliva (because it is a fragile virus that doesn't survive outside the body for long).
The most common way of getting HIV in the UK is through having anal or vaginal sex without a condom.
Other ways of contracting HIV include:
Most people experience a short, flu-like illness about 2-6 weeks after the initial contraction of HIV. This flu-like illness can last a week or two. After these symptoms disappear, HIV may not cause any symptoms for many years. This means many people with HIV don't know they're infected. In some cases, AIDS can be the first presentation of an HIV infection.
Certain groups of people are advised to have regular tests as they're at particularly high risk, including:
The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have an HIV test. This involves testing a sample of your blood or saliva for signs of the infection.
The HIV Duo 4th generation HIV test (£49) is the recommended test from 28 days post exposure. The new early detection rapid HIV test (£159) provides molecular testing for diagnosis from only 10 days post contact.
Anyone who has sex without a condom or shares needles is at risk of HIV infection. The best way to prevent HIV is to use a condom for sex and never share needles or other injecting equipment, including syringes, spoons and swabs.
Emergency anti-HIV medication called post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) may stop you becoming infected if started within three days of possible exposure to the virus.
If you test positive for HIV, you'll be referred to a specialist HIV clinic for more tests and a discussion about your treatment options.
HIV is a treatable condition and most people with HIV will remain fit and well. Antiretroviral medications are used to treat HIV. They work by stopping the virus replicating in the body and allows the immune system to repair itself. These come in the form of tablets, which need to be taken every day. Most people with HIV take a combination of drugs - this is to prevent drug resistance.
The goal of HIV treatment is to have an undetectable viral load. This means the level of HIV virus in your body is low enough to not be detected by a test.
Quick, efficient, clean and very helpful.Sunday, July 5, 2020
Email communication was spot on. The appointment started a few minutes early. Dr Moiz explained all options for my test clearly. The consultation and blood test were done within 10 minutes but never felt rushed. Amazingly I got the results by 19:00, from a 13:00 appointment... on a Saturday.Sunday, July 5, 2020
Really excellent - booked only an hour ahead of visit; easy to book - great doctor...Sunday, July 5, 2020
Hello, Personally, I was satisfied with dr. Ndlovu service and advises. Also, I would like to be able to register at her GP office as her permanent patient. Please, advise regarding this matter if possible. Furthermore, my suggestion is that it would be more useful if DocTap can offer a medical insurance that provides monthly medical subscriptions with clear benefits for the patients such as reduced costs for the analysis or free annual basic tests (blood, urine, general health check-up). Thank you! Best regards, Elena VavilovSaturday, July 4, 2020
Very good professional and kindSaturday, July 4, 2020
Excellent doctor and service, straight forward process and covid testing. And good value too. Highly recommend Dr Kazi.Friday, July 3, 2020

Easy all round! Exactly what I needed. Thanks!Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Easy and convenient location, appointment was within 20 minutes of the originally scheduled time, the doctor was personable and efficient, and also did the most painless blood draw ever.Sunday, June 28, 2020
I really appreciated my appointment with Dr Munim Moiz. He was polite, considerate, took time to explain and answer questions, and he followed up promptly as promised. I already recommended to my wife that she also consider Dr Moiz for future GP needs. Thank you.Saturday, June 27, 2020
I liked that the doctor took the time to actual visit me, take my pressure etc. Also, he gave me both options about going through NHS or private specialist, so that I had the impression the goal was to provide a full service for every pocket. The clinic was very clean, with disinfectant at the entrance, doctor with mask and gloves and the doctor also changed the gloves during the visit, which gave me the idea that hygiene rules are properly followed. No waiting time e not other people waiting on the same space, which is reassuring in this period. Taking the appointment was easy, with an affordable price, and I was able to do everything in one visit. I would suggest this service and I will probably use it again.Friday, June 26, 2020
Brilliant service, would definitely use againThursday, June 25, 2020
quick, easy and reassuring. A great resource to have access to.Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Dr James Stevens was excellent personable and friendly. He explained antI body test in clear detail. Would recommend and will be back.Friday, June 19, 2020
This was my first time using a private healthcare provider and so was unsure what to expect. I was seen by Dr L Kumar. I was impressed by her professionalism and impeccable bedside manner. She made me feel totally at ease, and explained everything to me in language I could understand. She was efficient at taking my blood, and demonstrated kindness and compassion in helping me understand the implications of my test results. She has empowered me to make informed decisions going forward with regards to my health. I highly recommend DocTap, and Dr Kumar in particular!Thursday, June 18, 2020
Great staff. The Doctor was lovely and kind. And wrote a great sick note. Thanks again!Saturday, June 13, 2020
Clear and helpful adviceFriday, June 12, 2020
Great assistance, great help and support. My first language isn't English and discuss about medical issues is not the easiest thing in the world. But the Doctor was very patient and supportive. I met an excellent doctor and she showed me the best way to proceed. I highly recommended DocTap.Friday, June 12, 2020
Fast and efficient system for being seen and advised when it suits best. Excellent servic3Thursday, June 11, 2020
Really good will follow up with GP againSunday, June 7, 2020
GP is excellent (seen 3 times now & always v good). The booking is slightly clunky now due to covid changes, e.g. I booked for Victoria, but someone phoned & I had to go to Bond St instead. This was OK but meant an additonal 40mins on my journey. But otherwise all good!Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Nice Doctor with a professional attitude.Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Wonderful patient care, very lovely doctor !Thursday, May 21, 2020
Am glad that I chose the setting as after telephone conversation I never felt reluctant to make an appointment with Dr Mois which I found professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, friendly, human. I will always recommend and I believe they are the future of healthcare in London.Sunday, May 17, 2020
DocTap seek to provide the most convenient, fastest, effective and best value private STI testing service in London. With 18 STD clinics across London and same day appointments available 7 days a week, it has never been easier to book an hiv test. We are proud to partner with The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) which has a worldwide reputation for excellence.
Unlike many walk in STI clinics, you will see a UK accredited GP who will be able to offer their expert option on what test is most appropriate for you. Your results will also be accompanied by a written analysis of what they mean and what your doctor advises you to do next. Should additional treatment be required, or if you simply wish to discuss the results in more detail, then you can book a 15 minute follow up consultation for only £25. This can either be at any DocTap clinic or over the phone. When booking your follow up consultation you can request to see you original doctor if you wish (subject to their availability).
Should you require a full consulation before deciding to have an hiv test then there may be insufficient time to also take a blood sample in the appointment. In that case you can choose to either go to our walk in laboratory by Oxford Street (£15 phlebotomy fee applies) or to make a second appointment for the doctor to take the bloods.Book an HIV Test today
Our doctors are available now and can perform a full range of STI tests from our 18 London STD clinics. To have an hiv test or to see a GP for any other reason book an appointment now.
