If you feel the issue is URGENT e.g. you need emergency contraception, HIV post-exposure treatment or have new and significant symptoms, please let the booking team know. Our 'contact us' option on the website can be used but there may be some delays in responding to non-urgent queries.

Will I have to wait to be seen?

Will I have to wait to be seen?

We do our best to make sure your wait in our walk-in clinic is as short as possible. However, the doctors or nurses will spend as much time with each person as they may need. This will sometimes lead to waiting times of up to two hours.

If you would rather not wait, you can book an appointment for a later date – just speak to one of the reception team.

Try not to pass urine (go for a wee) before being seen. Doing so may mean that we cannot perform some of the tests available here, or it may make them less effective.
