The full sexual health screening package includes a comprehensive range of STDs (sexually transmitted disease) tests: including HIV, Chlamydia, Genital Herpes, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis testing. (Contraceptive advice and provision can be discussed with the GP and pregnancy testing and support can also be an option if it is necessary.) We also provide a confidential telephone consultation with our GPs once your results are available and will prescribe suitable medication that you may require which you will need to pick up in the clinic personally.
Knowing there is a possibility of a risk of an STD or unwanted pregnancy it is important for your emotional and sexual well-being to get tested. Our GPs are sympathetic, open and discreet to all at risk groups including teenagers (who unfortunately have the highest rates of abortion) and minority groups.
Homosexuality still, unfortunately, remains a high risk factor for opportune HIV infection and importantly some people are unaware they are infected. There are also higher rates of Gonorrhoea and Syphilis in this risk group.
We will assess and identify your personal risk factors, giving you support and help at the consultation with our GP. We provide quick and prompt access to the full range of sexual health services with effective treatments. Our aim is to support, with shared decision-making, to help and enable you to exercise control over, and improve your sexual health. We will be here when you need us.
We have highly developed integrated care plans to enhance your choice. Together with our consistent quality of care you can be sure we will look after you and help in your recovery.
You need to have a full bladder for at least 2 hours prior to the appointment in order to facilitate an accurate test result.
You need to attend a consultation with our experienced GP who, together with you, will discuss the best testing options for you. This involves personal questions related to your sexual and medical history, and your methods of contraception. A shared decision making approach is adopted during your discussion with the GP with regard to sexual partners which, we hope, will inform and ultimately help you to improve your sexual health. A quicker, cheaper alternative would be a swab test done by one of our experienced health care professionals. However, a penis swab must be done by a doctor.
Once the results are available your privacy is our priority. You can choose how you want to receive your results. Our GP may call or emailed you or you can contact us at a time convenient to you. We have a system of confidentially protocols which ensure your information is kept secure. No information is shared with insurance companies or agencies and third parties
