National HIV Testing Week starts on Saturday 21 November, and people all around the country will be playing their part by getting tested.

This year’s celebrity ambassador is television doctor, Dr Christian Jessen – he is helping us to get the word out that regular HIV testing is not only good for your own health, but also helps stop the spread of HIV in our community.

At MTW, we offer rapid, free and confidential testing, with results within 60 seconds.

Our clinic at Maidstone Hospital will be offering a walk in service for testing, from 21 November to 27 November, during clinic opening times (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8am- 8pm, Wednesday: 1-8pm, Saturday: 10am-12noon).

We also have advice and support information at both A&E reception areas at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospitals.

In addition, we are offer testing at our all our community clinics in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks.

Please call 01622 225713 for more information on HIV testing.
