ABSTRACT
The article addresses some of the frequently-asked questions about HIV testing in Great Britain. It was reported that of the 91,500 people with HIV in Britain, 24% remain undiagnosed based on seroprevalence surveys. Failure to offer an HIV test when indicated could be regarded as clinical negligence, according to a medico legal point of view. Some of the questions to consider about HIV testing include who should be tested, who can do the test and the window period for the infection.
