Sexual Health

The practice offers confidential, non-judgmental sexual health advice, and testing for sexually transmitted infections to all patients, including young people.

We also offer:

  • Advice about pregnancy issues.
  • Contraception.
  • Advice about men’s health concerns (such as erectile dysfunction and testicular checks).
  • HIV tests.
  • Hepatitis B vaccination for high risk groups.

If you think you have symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection please make a nurse or GP appointment for advice and testing by visiting our Consulting room. 

If you wish to have sexual health screening and do not have any symptoms then you have several options:

  • If you are under 25 then you can pick up a free home testing kit for chlamydia from reception, or ask for one in your GP or nurse appointment. You send your samples by freepost and receive results by text or email. If you test positive then you will be contacted and treatment will be arranged.
  • Make a nurse or GP appointment for more detailed sexual health screening. You can do this by visiting our Consulting Room.
  • Make an appointment at a local sexual health clinic. Please visit our Sexual Health Wellbeing page for further details.

If you have had sex with someone in the last three days (72 hours) who is HIV positive or who has a high chance of having HIV then taking a short course of drugs as soon as possible may help to prevent infection. Contact your nearest sexual health clinic or accident and emergency department as soon as possible.
