Sexual health and HIV

Our sexual health and HIV services include STI testing and treatment (GUM), contraception, HIV and viral hepatitis testing, treatment and care.

At CNWL, our objective is to ensure that all people throughout Central and North West London have full access to discreet sexual health services. From testing to treatment and care, we endeavour to create accommodating, friendly and hospitable sexual health centres for people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs.

Our three main sexual health centres, Mortimer Market Centre, Archway Centre and Margaret Pyke Centre, all offer STI testing and treatment (GUM), contraception, and HIV testing, treatment and care. Our expert assistance and services are also available in 30 different locations across London. 

Understanding that privacy is important to our patients, we operate a discreet service which accommodates all visitors. At CNWL, we recognise that sexual health concerns can isolate you from partners, friends and families – so all members of our team endeavour to offer emotional support as well as expert care, advice and assistance.

Creating a friendly and accommodating environment has been one of the most important factors in overcoming the stigma attached to seeking sexual health information and care. Our non-judgemental team are trained to offer impartial advice with the highest levels of discretion.

Whilst all of our services are available in the three main centres, we also operate dedicated services in specific locations. If you require a specific service, please click the relevant link below to discover more information and which of our centres is best suited to your requirements:
