SX is a regular venue for m-test, a weekly community sexual health testing service for gay and bisexual men, and all men who have sex with men.

The service, delivered by NHS Lothian’s ROAM Outreach team, is based in our Mansfield Place office every Tuesday from 2:00-7:30pm. The service is drop-in, so no appointments are necessary.

M-test offers access to free, confidential and anonymous testing for:

  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Chlamydia
  • Hepatitis B & C

In addition, you can access one-to-one support, vaccination against Hepatitis A and B, and access to advice, free condoms and lube.

It is now recommended that men who regularly have sex with men, particularly those who have anal sex, have a regular sexual health check up, including an HIV test, every 3 months.
