Coronavirus: sexual health service update

Due to increased demand on the hospital because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are having to make significant changes to our services. Unfortunately, some appointments are cancelled or postponed after clinical review. This includes most of our face-to-face appointments. We are also not offering a walk-in service.

Please read our advice and information before attending the service.

    Sexual health centres are the most confidential part of the NHS. Notes are kept separately from hospital medical records, and GP records, and usually cannot be accessed without the patients’ agreement.

    We will need some contact details in order to be able to let you know your results or ask you to return for treatment.
  • After your appointment 

    If any of the tests that you have had are positive, you will be contacted by phone or text within two weeks. 

    If you have any concerns about your results, please call the results line on 020 7188 8726. This line is open between 11am and 1pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. It is closed on Wednesdays.
