Soon, get HIV tests done at UK supermart

Britons can now get a quick HIV test — in 60 seconds flat, when they visit a supermarket.

A British sexual health charity has decided to offer HIV tests at a supermarket in Slough from May 19. The charity has teamed up with Tesco Express in central Slough to offer testing in their store. Testing will be held in a private room. “Our Time to Test project now offers the 60 second Insti HIV test, as well as the 20 minutes swab test. When you book you can choose which test you’d prefer,” the charity said. Slough has previously been named as an HIV hot spot by the department of health. The Time to Test project will run on a weekly basis for six weeks.
