We’re introducing an exciting new IT system today. Our staff will be working hard to get used to the new technology, but because of this there may be a delay answering your calls and we may not have as many appointments to offer as normal. Please bear with us! The new technology will give our patients more power to book appointments themselves online at a time that suits you. Watch this space for more information.

How can someone be referred?
You do not need a referral from a general practitioner (GP) or healthcare professional to access this service.
Sexual health service, including chlamydia screening: please call to make an appointment.
Walk-in rapid HIV testing: no need to make an appointment, just walk in, but spaces are limited.
If you have an urgent problem please phone the clinic for advice.
Fast-track STI testing
Our fast-track service does just what it says! Rapid tests for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) mean that you can be out of the clinic in as little as 15 minutes.
The service is for men and women who would like a routine checkup (that is, who do not have any symptoms) and would only like to be tested for STIs. Appointments are available to book at the Archway Centre, Margaret Pyke Centre and Mortimer Market Centre.
A fast-track appointment includes testing for:
- Chlamydia and gonorrhoea
- Hepatitis (if indicated)
You will be offered all tests suitable to someone without symptoms.
After you complete a self-assessment, a healthcare support worker will check and process the following tests: a urine test for men, a self-taken vaginal swab for women, a blood test and an instant HIV-test result. You will not be seen by a doctor or nurse.
If your test results are negative we will send them to you by text message within seven days. If you have an infection or we need to repeat one of your tests or obtain further information from you, we will phone you to arrange for you to return for treatment.
Please use one of our other services if you:
- Are under 16 - come to our young people's clinic, more details below
- Are a gay or bisexual man - try our services for men who have sex with men (MSM)
You may need to wait or be asked to make another appointment to see a nurse or doctor if you:
- Have been in contact with someone who has an infection
- Wish to discuss any worries or concerns about your health
- Require contraception or a pregnancy test
