Count to sixty and I'll tell you if you have HIV

I saw an ad today on the tube for a service called samedaydoctor™, which suggested you could get an HIV test done in 60 seconds.

Surely the service should be renamed "sameminute" doctor?

While I appreciate that a wait for a result can be awful, I'm not sure anyone would really want to get a diagnosis of HIV in a shorter time than it takes to buy a cappuccino in the Pret. Do you think they maybe wait another minute or two before telling you the news?

I had a look on the website and an HIV test is £110. That's £110 a minute.

Even a plumber would be envious.
