We offer:

• Diagnosis and management of:
- Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), including Syphilis and HIV
- Other related genital problems including genital skin conditions and genital pain
• Specialist services upon GP referral
• Consultation and advice on other sexual and reproductive issues
 

Symptom free is no guarantee

• You can have an STI without having any symptoms. 
• If you have had unprotected sex it is important to have a sexual health check since untreated STI’s can lead to health complications.
 

What else do I need to know?

• You can be seen for sexual health checks by our service without a referral from your General Practitioner (GP).
• STIs have incubation periods, so it takes at least two weeks for most STIs to be detected in the tests, and even longer (around six weeks) for blood-borne infections HIV, Hepatitis B and Syphilis.
• If we can’t answer the phone, please leave a message. We are very conscious of confidentiality when returning calls.
