Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is the most common cause of life-threatening infections in newborn babies in the UK. Most GBS infections can be prevented with intravenous antibiotics, given at the onset of labour. This reduces the likelihood of early-onset GBS infection developing in a baby born to a woman carrying GBS at the time of delivery from around 1 in 300 to less than 1 in 6000.??

A GBS test is not routinely carried out on the NHS but this kit, available through on behalf of The Doctors Laboratory can provide you with the results you need so that you can make your healthcare providers aware should you need treatment.

The kit is free of charge to order and once received, there is no obligation to take it. Should you wish to, it should be carried out between 35 37 weeks of pregnancy. Take the swabs as per the instructions and return with a payment of 32 direct to The Doctors Laboratory who will analyse them and provide you with a result within 3 days of receipt of your swabs via text and hardcopy.

Please note that this test is dispatched direct from our supplier. Next day delivery is not available on this test.


Simply click 'buy now' and the kit will be added to your shopping basket without charge.
