AN OXFORD MP has tested for HIV. 

Oxford East MP Anneliese Dodds took a speedy HIV test, which gives results in 15 minutes, to 'normalise' testing and help end new cases of HIV in the next 10 years. 

She joined 58 other MPs to use the Simplitude ByMe test by Oxfordshire-based Owen Mumford for Public Health England's (PHE) National HIV Testing Week last week. 

Sharing pictures on Twitter, the Shadow Chancellor said: "Huge advances in science mean it's now possible to test for HIV in less than 15 minutes - just like I did."
