Sexual health

About

Our sexual health clinics at the Jefferiss Wing offer testing, treatment and advice for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Where possible we will diagnose and treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – samples may need to be sent off to our laboratories for analysis. If we find any infection, we will contact you immediately to ask you to return for treatment.

Our address is Jefferiss Wing, St Mary's Hospital, Praed Street, London W2 1NY.

We also run a range of specialist sexual health clinics.
