How can someone be referred?
Clinics are open-access, which means that you do not need a referral from a general practitioner (GP) or other healthcare professional.
For an STI test, telephone us to make an appointment. There is no need to make an appointment for a PEPSE, emergency contraception or to attend the young persons’ clinic, just walk in.
If you need urgent help, telephone us on 020 3317 5252 and a healthcare professional will return your call.
