Changes in HIV testing since COVID
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GMI partners have enabled three options for you to get the test done. Our free testing service is available to all London residents.
Meet us in the venues
We are offering free HIV rapid tests in many locations across London. Find out where and when we are that is most convenient for you. You don’t need to book an appointment for this; just show up and talk to our staff. They will be able to test you and address any sexual health concerns you might have.
