DTAP Clinic launches DTAP Express for COVID-19 Compliant STD Testing

By  |  0 Comments

DTAP Clinic announces the launch of its first DTAP Express clinic for COVID-19 Compliant STD Testing, in the heart of the central business district (CBD) area for easy access. 

The new DTAP Express clinic is built on similar and successful models of sexual health services across the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (U.S.).

The clinic provides on-demand, express and discreet self-testing services. This helps people obtain test results faster, improving from a week’s duration to mere days. Those with positive results can seek treatment faster and indirectly reduce disease transmission to partners.  

There are other scenarios where an STD test might reveal treatable infections, that impact sperm count and quality in men, and also damage the reproductive organs in women. This might help couples who have tried unsuccessfully to have children despite various fertility reviews to determine possible problems.

The DTAP Express clinic is located at #01-70, Icon Village, 12 Gopeng Street, Singapore 078877.

Patients who visit the DTAP Express clinic can get themselves registered, answer a short questionnaire and obtain a self-testing kit. After collecting their samples at the clinic or in the comforts of their own home, they drop the samples off in the clinic’s collection bin. Patients will receive their test results via confidential text or email, and if required, they can also pick up treatment packs for themselves or their partners thereafter.  

Leveraging on our strengths as the largest private provider of sexual health services in Singapore, we bring together a seamless patient experience to address our patients’ private and most pertinent sexual health concerns with the availability of quick, fuss-free and confidential STD testing in the heart of town. This DTAP Express journey began with an initial study trip to London in 2019, after prior extensive research on similar successful models of sexual health in the UK and the U.S. We then adapted the best practices for our patient’s needs and launched our own DTAP Express clinic in Singapore. We hope that more people and their partners will have a peace of mind and gain clarity on their sexual health, and not be hampered by the ongoing pandemic.
