What is the Fast Four Bloods Screen?

Better2Know’s Fast Four Bloods Screen tests for four different infections in the blood: HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Syphilis. The results from this screen will be reported one working day after your samples have arrived at our CPA accredited laboratory.

For this screen, a minimum of 28 days must have passed since your last potential exposure.


Which STIs are tested for?

Our Fast Four Bloods Screen tests for:

  • HIV I/II and the p24 antigen
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C

Which samples are needed?

To test for these infections, only blood is required. This will be collected by a qualified clinician at your appointment. On the same day, your samples will be sent to our testing laboratory for fast and accurate analysis.

How do I get my results?

The results from your Fast Four Bloods test will be available within one working day after our laboratory receives your samples. Once all your results are ready, a member of Better2Know’s sexual health advisory team will contact you. Your results will also be reported in your secure online Patient Area.

What if I test positive?

Do not worry; Better2Know will help you. If any test from your screen is reactive, we will provide confirmatory testing at no further cost.

We can arrange a private consultation with a doctor who will discuss the diagnosis, address any concerns you have and prescribe the appropriate treatment. If necessary, we will also provide referral to a specialist.

Alternatively, you can take your results to your GP or local sexual health centre.
