    Never had one.

    I spoke to the Docs about it a while back and they said there was no reason for me to have one.

    I think everyone should be tested at least once every three years.

    My test was atrocious. When I had to reverse the 18 wheeler around a corner and into the warehouse I managed to jackknife the thing. I swore never to sit in one again.

    Nope never. And of course Mark Fowler from Eastenders has lived 11 yrs without even a cold, so I don't feel the need.

    The least tasteful AIDS related thing I saw was in New York.

    A whole square called Aids Plaza.

    Our NHS is buggered enough as it is without introducing compulsary HIV tests.

    They'll only test you if you're at risk.

    You mean you can't walk in and say "Here's 20 bucks, I want an AIDS test?" There's no private company who does them for a fee?

    A word of warning. The lab I used to work in had a virology department. On the floor below mine. They used to use an american test for HIV. It used to give negative results for known carriers......

    Private health care is bad in this country. It's the same doctors. The only difference is there are no waiting lists. It's a quicker service but not better quality. There is no accountability like there is with Performance indicators in the NHS.
