This framework has been created in association with Public Health England (PHE) and English local authorities as a single supplier for an HIV self sampling website, sampling kit provision and testing and results management service.

The service can be accessed from the www.freetesting.hiv website. This website will automatically re direct the enquiry to the appointed service provider, Preventx Limited.

Preventx Limited are responsible for the entire service provision. The requirement will be met using their test.hiv brand. Preventx Limited will provide and maintain the ordering website, kit fulfilment and testing of returned samples from their Sheffield based laboratory. Communication of the reactive results service has been subcontracted to Yorkshire MESMAC who will in turn contact the service user to signpost them to a level 3 GUM/integrated sexual health service local to them and of their choice for confirmatory testing and support.
