This will be discussed with the young person at the time of the consultation.

"Test & Go" Service

"Test & Go" Service

For some people a using the "Test & Go" route provides a quicker and more convenient service.  However, this would not be suitable for all patients and a brief questionnaire will need to be completed beforehand to determine whether a simple test & Go would be suitable or whether you would benefit from further assessment.

To find out whether this option is right for you, talk to our receptionists when you attend.
