Syphilis Test & Treatment
Syphilis is a bacterial infection transmitted through sexual activity. Infection can produce a sore followed by a rash and flu-like symptoms.
If left undiagnosed or untreated Syphilis can lead to brain or nerve damage and mental deterioration many years after the initial infection occurred. If you feel you have been exposed to the virus, or have any of the symptoms, you should consider getting tested.
A Syphilis test at YourGP offers:
- Short-notice appointments
- Complete confidentiality and 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
Your practitioner will discuss your sexual history with you and take a blood 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.
Treatment for syphilis is usually a course of antibiotics. We would normally recommend you contact your NHS GP or local GUM clinic for on-going long-term care. If you would prefer to be treated privately, we can provide this.
£150 (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).
“It is obvious from the outset that Dr Benade is very experienced in the Occ Health field. Because my employer had referred me to her I expected a bias in their favour. I was completely wrong. Dr Benade was very attentive, thorough and fair. How I feel mattered and she understood my eagerness to recover and remain with my employer in the job I love”View more testimonials
