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 confidentiality.
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.
If you are attending for an STI screening, please do not pass urine for at least an hour prior to your appointment. (This applies to men only)
Wishing all our patients, colleagues and friends a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year.
