What happens if I am offered treatment?

What happens if I am offered treatment?

If you are offered and decide to have free treatment in our clinics, the nurse or doctor will give this to you and discuss how to use it. You may then be asked about people you have had sex with recently who may also need treatment. This is called partner notification.

Partner notification is completely confidential. It helps you to tell anyone you have had sex with recently about treatment they might also need for an infection passed on by sex. The nurse or doctor will also be happy to provide any sexual health related advice or guidance, so please feel free to ask them any questions you may have.

You might also be offered a Hepatitis B vaccination, if you might be at a higher risk of coming into contact with this virus, and medication (PEP), if there is a high risk that have very recently been in contact with HIV.
