What Does Our Service Do?

We provide a confidential, self referral sexual health service. The service includes:

  • Screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections
  • Specialist HIV treatment and care
  • Sexual Health Promotion, information and advice.

How Does Our Service Work?

Our confidential service aims to see patients within 48 hours following telephone contact.

Your sexual health will be assessed and routine test samples will be taken during your first appointment. Test results will be available within 14 days to ensure the most effective treatment can be offered. We also offer a contact notification service to reduce the risk of further sexually transmitted infection.

HIV testing, counselling and on-going care will be personalised to offer the best possible support and care by our qualified specialist team.

The service is provided by Specialist (GUM) Consultants, health advisors and nursing staff to ensure optimum care for our service users. We see on average 130 patients per week within our four days per week clinic sessions.
