If you suspect that you have an STD infection, you will want to take immediate action. The last thing you want to have to do will be to delay. By reading on, you can find out how to avoid STD test waiting lists with London STD testing.
Many people wait longer than two weeks for an appointment
The problems that the NHS is under are manifesting themselves in huge waiting lists. According to an article in the Sun newspaper in June 2016, the average waiting time to get an appointment with your GP was then 13 days. When interviewed, four out of every ten GPs reported patients having to wait more than two weeks to get an appointment. Many people gave up waiting altogether.
Being led into a false sense of security
The problem that this poses for STDs in particular is that the infection often progresses. But that’s not the worst case scenario. Very often, STD symptoms never materialise, or sometimes they do and then disappear. This leads people into a false sense of security.
They may either think they are not infected, or that the infection has gone away. The fact of the matter however, is that not only is the infection still live, albeit without symptoms; but it will develop. Without diagnosis and treatment, some STDs can eventually cause infertility and even death.
