Yorkshire MESMAC's Testing Times aims to increase access to rapid HIV testing and STI testing by providing services in MSM community settings in Leeds. Rapid HIV tests, and pee-in-a-pot screening for gonorrhoea and Chlamydia, are provided by MESMAC. Nurses can give hepatitis B vaccination in the same settings. Removing barriers to accessing services is seen as important - especially if men have concerns about confidentiality in traditional sexual health clinics. This service allows men to access STI services in familiar settings. The element of peer support and having services provided by other MSM is also important. Workers also provide information on PEP, STI and HIV prevention and refer on to other services.
