Based at St Mary's Hospital, our services are free and confidential for all regardless of nationality. We make a commitment to you to be discreet and respectful in relation to all aspects of your life.

If you have symptoms, please call 020 3312 6629 and we will arrange an appointment for you with a nurse practitioner. If it’s an emergency, you can come straight to the Jefferiss Wing’s sexual health walk-in clinic without booking an appointment – please click here to see the clinic’s opening hours.

If you have no symptoms but would like a check-up, we offer a fast screening service called Check & Go. We offer appointments during the clinic’s opening hours and also before 09.00 if you need to be seen earlier in the day.
