Sexual Health, HIV and Hepatitis

During the COVID-19 situation we are adopting social distancing measures to keep our patients and staff safe. To support this, we are introducing alternatives to face to face consultations. These consultations are bound by our standard privacy requirements and will provide the same quality care for you, but will be facilitated over the phone or via video. Face to face consultations are still available when needed. Please call the clinic on the numbers below for more information and help.

Do you need testing, treatment or support with sexual health, sexuality or hepatitis? We provide free Sexual Health Services (including specialist HIV care) and the Liver Clinics treat hepatitis.

Local doctors (GPs – General Practitioners) do most STI, HIV and Hepatitis testing. Find one near you by entering the name of your town at the bottom of this directory.

Sexual Health Infolink  has good information. Specialist sexual health nurses are on the phone lines. 

You can get a free HIV and Hepatitis C testing kit through the post at the Dried Blood Spot website.  

Information is available in other languages from the Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service.
