Herpes Test & Treatment

The Herpes Simplex Virus is transmitted through sexual activity or kissing. It causes cold sores or blisters round the mouth or the genital area.

If you feel you have been exposed to the virus, have cold sores or blisters you should consider getting tested.

A Herpes test at YourGP offers:

  • Short-notice appointments
  • Complete confidentiality the ability to remain anonymous
  • Fast turnaround of results
  • Test carried out in an accredited laboratory

If you receive a positive result we are able to offer advice, support and any necessary treatment.

How It Works

When you arrive our practitioner will discuss your sexual history and take a urine sample or conduct a visual examination and take a swab sample.

  • Where appropriate a follow up telephone consultation will be arranged to discuss a positive or result of concern

We ask patients to phone for their results between 3.30pm and 4.30pm. We can e-mail your results after talking with you.

For Herpes, treatment is usually a course of tablets and/or ointment.


£170 (includes consultation fee)
Treatment/medication costs will be extra.

(When you book your appointment we will ask for a £50 deposit to secure the appointment time. The £50 will be deducted from the cost of your consultation)

What Our Customers Have To Say

“After being written off by chronic pain team and their physios, and losing faith in the physio discipline, I had no expectations from Peter. I am amazed at what he has done for me. Although I still have my pain I, at last, understand what’s happening, why and how to best manage it. Peter has given me the control back. I recommend Peter to anyone I meet who needs a good physio”
