What to expect when you contact us

  • You will be offered an appointment within 48 hours of contacting the clinic
  • You will be asked a few questions to determine who it is best for you to see. We have a range of doctors and nurses who can help you.

Testing for sexual infections should be done 2 weeks after an episode of unprotected sex in those without symptoms. In anyone with symptoms testing should be done immediately to avoid any delay in diagnosing a sexual infection.

  • You may be asked to ‘hold your urine’ for one hour prior to your appointment time to ensure high diagnostic accuracy of the genital tests taken.
  • You will be given a unique GUM Clinic Number when you attend and this will remain your number for any future visits. If you have been before but cannot remember your number the reception team will still be able to help you.
