A sexual health support charity will offer free finger prick tests in Hemel Hempstead during National HIV week.

The Herts Aid team will be at clinics and community venues across the county from November 22.

There will be an awareness-raising day on Wednesday, November 27, for students at West Herts College’s Dacorum campus in Marlowes.

Members of the public are invited to take a test at the Marlowes Family Planning Clinic on Thursday, November 28 from 6pm to 8pm.

The test shows an initial result in 60 seconds, and if HIV antibodies are found then help and support will be given.
