We are experiencing a high demand for our services and we are working hard to make sure that you are seen as quickly as possible.

Our colleagues on the phone lines will need to ask questions to help ensure that our urgent appointments are available for those who are most unwell.

Patients with non-urgent issues may wait a little longer for an appointment but most will still be seen within 14 days.

Your GP may be able to help with your contraception needs.  

Please be patient with our colleagues and thank you for your understanding.

National Chlamydia Screening Programme Consultation

Public Health England are looking for your opinions on the National Chlamydia Screening Programme!

Currently any sexually active 15-24 year old can be offered a chlamydia test under this programme. However, it has been recommended that we focus on reducing harm from untreated chlamydia. Untreated chlamydia has the biggest impact on the reproductive health of people who are assigned female at birth. This is why Public Health England is consulting on whether the programme should focus on screening people who are assigned female at birth alongside treating those who test positive.

Check out this video for more information and let them know what you think!
