Now, you can order “sex MOT,” the do-it-yourself STD testing kit that’s available online from your smartphone, the Mirror reported.
By going online they will be sent a home testing kit and samples are then posted to a lab with results sent via text or email. The mail-order tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and HIV.
If they test positive patients are referred to their local clinic and fast tracked dodging the queue. The tests results are sent back in just days rather than the current 7 to 10 days.
The not for profit firm behind the cyber- testing scheme said it can slash the costs to the NHS by over half.
Gillian Holdsworth, a consultant in Public Health Medicine and Programme Director for the scheme SH:24, said that it aims to increase efficiency and improve the experience for users and radically improve sexual health outcomes. It is available 24 hours a day, with confidentiality and results by text within a week guaranteed.
