About our sexual health service

The Jefferiss Wing offers a sexual health service for women, men and transgender individuals who work, have worked or are associated with any part of the sex industry within London.

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 6614 If you have no symptoms but would like a check-up, you can get up to 12 kits a year for home testing through the Sexual Health London (SHL) online sexual health service. Call the SHL recall team for a consultation over the phone and to receive up to one kit per month. They can be reached on 020 3315 4545, Monday through Friday, 08.00 to 16.00.

If you would like a check-up but live in a borough that is not participating in the SHL scheme, you can find your local sexual health service either through SH24 or NHS.uk.
