Freedomhealth is launching a brand new STD/STI and HIV / Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C testing service across Europe. Patients can text the code for the STD or HIV test of their choice to a dedicated number and an HIV / Hepatitis B / Hepatitis C /STD /STI testing kit will be sent to them by post (arriving the next working day if ordered by 5.00 pm).
Each test is performed by the Doctors Laboratory. the biggest private laboratory in the UK and part of the Sonic Group which is a global provider of diagnostic services. The Doctors Laboratory is a major and sophisticated testing facility.
Freedomhealth works closely with The Doctors Laboratory and also in partnership with ChemistDirect to provide a comprehensive range of Health Solutions.
Freedomhealth is registered with the Care Quality Commission, has a permanent staff of dedicated, very experienced and well trained doctors and also operates a walk-in or appointment service from very comfortable, smart and clean premises at 60 Harley Street London W1G 7HA. If you'd rather visit us then please call us on +44 (0)20 6371600.
We also offer telephone consultations for one to one discussion of your individual circumstances.
This innovative new system is simple and very easy to use.
Decide which test seems the most appropriate for you and then text the special code to 88020 if you live in the UK or +447950080232 if you live in Western Europe.
You will then receive a set of very simple questions and some instructions. The test results will be returned to Freedomhealth Limited and all results will be individually checked by one of our doctors.
The tests currently available are as follows:-
FHPATH1 - this is a very sophisticated combined urine test which will correctly identify genital infection with chlamydia, gonorrhoea, herpes 1 and 2, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, trichomonas, and gardnerella all in one simple test. The test costs £180 and the fee is payable only when you return the testing kit to our laboratory in the pre-paid envelope supplied. To obtain this test kit text FHPATH1 to 88020.
FHPATH2 - an important urine test for chlamydia alone. The test costs £70 and the fee is payable only when you return the testing kit to our laboratory in the pre-paid envelope supplied. To obtain this test kit text FHPATH2 to 88020

FHPATH4 - this is a state of the art HIV DUO BLOOD test kit. The HIV DUO test combines a test looking for HIV 1 and 2 antibodies and also p24 antigen which allows for very early detection of HIV infection. This is an excellent test and very accurate indeed after just 28 days after possible exposure. The test costs £75 and is payable only when you return the testing kit to our laboratory in the pre-paid envelope supplied. To obtain this test kit text FHPATH4 to 88020
FHPATH5 - a superb Early Detection Screen for very early HIV 1 and HIV 2, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C - testing from as early as 7 days post possible exposure to HIV. This test is superior to the HIV DUO and can be done much earlier. In terms of HIV it detects RNA which is the key viral structure. The test costs £192 and this is payable only when you return the testing kit to our laboratory in the pre-paid envelope supplied. The test takes 5 working days to be processed from the date of receipt. To obtain this test kit text FHPATH5 to 88020
All of these tests are available by simply texting the test code number to the 88020 (or +447950080232 if you live in Western Europe and outside the UK) and answering the simple questions.
You have the option if you live within the London M25 area of requesting a nurse to visit you to collect the blood from you. You can do this by calling us on 020 7637 1600 Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 6.30 pm or Saturday 10.30 am to 3.30 pm and asking for the Freedomhealth Visiting Nurse service. This service will cost a further flat fee of £85 which covers the cost of dispatching the nurse to you, collecting the blood and returning to the laboratory with your samples.
Telephone consultations are available with one of our doctors through the week and into Saturday's. They are pre-paid at the time of booking and we charge £55 for a twenty minute consultation.
