Syphilis is tested for by collecting a swab from an ulcer and a blood test. This can be done in your sexual health clinic. The result will be available to you within two weeks.
If you do not have any symptoms, you can still be tested for syphilis with a blood test. This can be done at the King’s Sexual Heath Clinic at Beckenham Beacon or you may be eligible to receive an online test.
Remember to make sure that your partner(s) also get tested.
