Specialist Sexual Health

We have a team of specialist doctors and nurses who provide the fitting and removal of IUD and implants.

Please make a telephone appointment via our Patient Services Team to discuss these methods. When starting any new method of contraception, we have to check you are not already pregnant and have not been at risk of pregnancy since your last period or stopping the last method. Appointment for fitting will only be made after a consultation discussing the risks and benefits.

Specialist Sexual Health Services

You can make an appointment with any regular GP or practice nurse to have a check up. if you are worried about any sexually transmitted infections (STIs). We can offer treatment and counselling for most STIs. Our audits have shown we offer the same standard of care as a sexual health clinic.

We encourage anyone who may be at risk to have an HIV test – 1/3 of adults in the UK with HIV do not know they have the infection. Many people are diagnosed late when treatment can be less effective.

HIV Care

If you have HIV, we would like you to share this information with us; this is so that you get the best care from your specialist and your GP. Your specialist will give us the most up-to-date information about your treatment and care. Many people with HIV can be well with or without treatment. However, if we know that your immunity is poor, it will help us to give you the right advice at the right time. It is also important to let us know if you are taking treatment for HIV as there could be interactions with common drugs such as antibiotics.

It is important to keep yourself fit and healthy whether you are on treatment or not.

Once you are on our register, we will invite you for health checks, flu, pneumococcal and hepatitis B vaccinations, contraceptive advice and yearly cervical smears for women.
