MUMS offer Hepatitis B Testing 6 days a week with rapid results. Hepatitis B can cause long lasting infection and can cause liver damage including cirrhosis and even liver cancer. It is important to be tested if you think you may be infected.
Hepatitis B is a virus and can be contracted with infected blood, unprotected sex, sharing needles and mothers can pass it to their babies during childbirth. Hepatitis B can also be caught easily from blood and therefore can be caught on surfaces, cuts, and tears.
Treatment of Hepatitis B means resting and being monitored by a specialist consultant. Miss Hannah Church – MUMS sexual health consultant is an expert in the testing and treatment of Hepatitis B – using anti-viral medication.
We also offer an instant Hepatitis B Test which costs £95.00. Results are available within 15 minutes, and we recommend a 28-day waiting time between possible infection date and testing date. Because Miss Hannah Church may recommend a laboratory test as opposed to an instant test – which may require laboratory confirmatory testing for Hepatitis B – we advise patients to have the Hepatitis B Laboratory test which is a blood test in the first instance.
MUMS Hepatitis B Screen Testing service is easy to access, confidential and accurate. If you want to know your Hepatitis B status – tested by experts – then call us on 0121 704 2669 or book online or send us an enquiry.
