Our testing drop-ins

Throughout the year, we offer a free HIV testing drop-in service, with results available in 20 minutes.

The drop-in sessions are held from 5-8pm on the last Wednesday and Thursday of every month in Hanley. 

The next drop in sessions are:

  • Wednesday 26th June - 5pm-8pm 
  • Thursday 27th June - 5pm-8pm 

If you'd like a HIV test sooner, please visit Cobridge Community Health Centre

Please only visit The Piccadilly Centre during drop-in times listed above. If you visit at any other time we will be unable to provide you with a HIV test.

Drop-in venue - The Piccadilly Centre

The Piccadilly Centre,

Why should I get a test?

  • Not everyone gets symptoms so you might have HIV and not know

  • People who start treatment early can expect to live a long, healthy life 

  • People who are on effective treatment can't pass on the virus

  • It's free, quick and confidential


What does the test involve?

The test is a quick fingerprick test and will give you your results in 20 minutes. See our video below for a quick demonstration of what to expect when you come for a HIV fingerprick test.
