Visit a clinic

Take a look at our clinic locations below. Our main clinics are Truro and Pool, some of our other clinics aren’t open every week so please phone 0300 30 30 714 to check.

If you’re 16 or over and live in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, you can order a free postal STI test kit from SH:24. This is the quickest and easiest way to test for Chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis.


These postal test kits are for people who have no symptoms (are asymptomatic). If you have any symptoms, please contact Brook Cornwall on 0300 30 30 714

Brook recommends testing two weeks after unprotected sex (sex without a condom) to ensure an accurate result. For HIV testing, you need to wait 6 weeks to take a test in order to get the most accurate result.

You can also come to clinic to get tested and if you are diagnosed with an STI, Brook Cornwall will contact you to arrange free treatment.

Testing and treatment for genital warts and herpes

If you think you might have genital warts or genital herpes, we can offer online diagnosis and treatment by post, without you needing to visit a clinic. The service is provided by SH:24, and uses photo diagnosis.
