We ensure highly accurate testing and results, as well as further consultation and medical information should you test positive.
What is the difference between an STI and an STD?
An STI is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, and STD is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. They mean the any bug that can be sexually transmitted. People feel that having a disease is a lot worse than having an infection. Most STIs are easily treated so this is the more common term.
At your private appointment in Newcastle, a qualified phlebotomist will collect your samples and send them to our fully certified laboratory for analysis. Results should be ready within one to five working days from your sample’s arrival at our laboratory. Results are then reported to you in your secure, confidential patient area of our website. A member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team will also contact you personally once all your results are ready unless you specify otherwise. Please see our map of Newcastle below to locate your most convenient STI testing centre in the city.
