This test looks for the presence of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) 1 and 2 antibodies, and also for antibodies to a part of the virus particle known as p24. This virus protein is detectable in the blood before antibodies are made to the HIV particle, meaning it allows for earlier detection of HIV if present. Once established, the p24 antibodies diminish - so the p24 test a test for diagnosis, whereas HIV antibodies when present suggest an established infection with HIV.

This confidential blood assay for HIV 1, 2 Antibodies and p24 Antigen is offered at all of the thirty two Spire hospitals across England, Scotland and Wales.

Included in every single test for HIV 1, 2 Antibodies and p24 Antigen are a Doctors Referral, all Phlebotomy fees (your blood taken at a Private Hospital), all laboratory fees and includes our GP comments.

Our blood tests are 100% confidential and all results are sent to your dedicated email address you provide us with upon ordering.

Staying safe from STIs. Private sexual health testing

According to data released by Public Health England (PHE), in 2020 diagnoses of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) decreased by 32% compared to 2019.

While on paper this sounds like very good news, looking at influences in 2020, we can see that this reduction is due in large part to fewer people accessing testing while the NHS ran reduced services during the pandemic.

We also saw people change their behaviours during lockdown, with less opportunity for social encounters which could lead to the spread of infections.
