Been researching about this and mil has mentioned the test isnt availablr on nhs but is around £30 but wasn't sure how I'd go about getting tested.
Have Googled and seen some home tests but not really sure if I trust myself to do such a test or results from a company off the Internet.
Is it possible to go to my normal gp or midwife and ask to be tested and pay the fee? I guess they won't be able to 'accept' money if they work for NHS? Have read stories of women asking at gp or midwife but been refused due to low risk- not a chance I want to take tbh.
Or do I just rock up at a private hospital or medical centre?
Does anyone know?

I would also like to know the answer to this - sorry I am of no help OP!

I think you can pay to have it done privately through your GP if they offer it - I know some round our way do 'Private Testing'. I am going to ask my midwife next time I see her as well.
