The Sexual Health Network, Greater Manchester. NHS


RUClear is run by the NHS, the tests are of a high quality and are FREE.

RUClear offer free tests from the NHS, for the sexually transmitted infections (STIs) chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis.


STIs are passed on through intimate sexual contact.  They can be passed on during vaginal, anal and oral sex, as well as through other intimate contact with an infected partner.

Common STIs in this country include chlamydia and gonorrhoea and RUClear offer a test and treatment which is free and painless for these two infections.  Across the country all sexually active young people under 25 are being encouraged to be tested for chlamydia as it is the most common STI and most people do not know they have it.  If left undiagnosed it can lead to long term problems such as infertility.

At RUClear we also offer free testing for HIV and syphilis which is a small finger prick blood sample.  Both of these infections, as well as being passed on through intimate sexual contact, can be passed on through blood including sharing needles.  If left undiagnosed both of these infections can drastically affect quality of life.

If you would like further information on how to receive a test kit for some, or all of these infections please go to the 'Take a Test' section or telephone our confidential help line.
