HEALTH ADVISER’S ROLE AT ELITE RETREAT
It is always good to get a regular STI check-up as people don’t always show symptoms.
At the moment we can provide free tests for chlamydia & gonorrhoea.
At the sauna we can do tests for people who haven’t got symptoms. This will be a urine sample (it is important that you have not passed urine for at least an hour to make the test reliable).
We also offer swabs from the throat & bottom – which you can take yourself.
Results are not available on the day so we need a telephone number to contact you about your results whether they are positive or negative.
If a test is positive we will discuss with you how to access treatment.
FURTHER TESTS AVAVIALBE AT BRTISTOL SEXUAL HEALTH CENTRE (10 MINS AWAY FROM ELITERETREAT)
In addition to the tests mentioned above for chlamydia & gonorrhoea you can also get;
- BLOOD TESTS FOR HIV/SYPHILIS/HEP B
- VACCINATIONS AGAINST HEP A / HEP B
We can also provide PEPSE (post exposure treatment for HIV) – this needs to be started within 3 days of risk happening and will depend on clinical review.
Attendance at either the sauna drop in – or the Bristol sexual health clinic are both confidential services and your results aren’t passed onto other clinics/your gp.
