  • treatment for all STIs
  • rapid HIV testing
  • Hepatitis A and B vaccination

If you would like more information on this service, or to make an appointment please telephone 0300 373 0709.

If you are a lesbian, bisexual woman or identify as female (including trans) you are more than welcome to attend this clinic but if you would prefer to attend an alternative clinic at any of our services please call 0300 373 0709 and we can arrange for you to be seen at another time.

Although our service is focussed on sexual health if there is anything else that concerns you, for example psychological issues or worries you can discuss this with the nurse or doctor seeing you. We may not always be able to deal with the issue there and then but we can offer appropriate advice and may be able to refer you to an appropriate service.
