Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are passed on from one person to another through unprotected sex or genital contact.  

Getting tested and treated for STIs is straightforward and confidential. Our staff will explain everything to you as clearly as possible and help to reassure you. 

Many STIs do not show symptoms until years later which is why it is important to get tested before and after meeting a new partner. 

The tests are quick and painless, and infections are generally easy to treat. If left untreated, infections can become painful, harder to treat, and in some cases may lead to infertility or long-term health issues. 

Get tested 

If you think you may have symptoms of an STI, please call us to book an appointment to get tested or attend our walk-in clinic.  

If you do not have any symptoms but would like a test, please call to book an appointment or request a test online.
