STI Screening

We offer a full screening service for sexually transmitted infections. Unfortunately there are a large number of such infections in circulation, many of which can be picked up easily by men or women. They include

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Genital warts
  • Trichomonas
  • Hepatitis B
  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Herpes

In many cases you may not even know you are infected so therefore can pass on an infection to a partner without realising it.

All of our clinical staff have specific further training in this area so can do all of the necessary swabs and blood tests.

A morning appointment is preferable so samples reach the lab in good time. This service is beneficial whether you have symptoms of infection (these include discharge, pain, lumps, sores, burning in urine), or if you and your partner simply want to know you are both free of infection.

We realize this is a sensitive subject so we provide the service with discretion and complete confidentiality.

The samples can also be sent anonomously so only your GP here can identify you, if required.

You may find it easier to come for such testing in the privacy of a GP surgery rather than a busy public STI clinic in a hospital.

In all cases, there is no point attending any sooner than 2 weeks after the contact that you are concerned about as the test results may not be accurate. This does not apply if you have visible symptoms.

For men, please do not urinate for 1 hour before your appointment as this can affect the accuracy of the test.
