How to access the service

We are primarily a walk-in service, but we do also offer appointments for non-urgent concerns and for those without symptoms, and for some contraceptive procedures.

Our services are open to all ages. Most are ‘open access’, meaning you can refer yourself, or your GP can refer you. Please check the opening time for each clinic location for details of services and how to access them.

At present we have a central booking telephone number for all enquiries and booking of appointments. The line is open Mondays to Fridays from 8.30am - 6.30pm, except public holidays. Our phone lines are busiest in the morning. If you can’t get through when you first call, there may be an option to leave a message, or alternatively please try again later.

We hope to introduce online appointments bookings in the future aswell as on-line postal testing. Please check the website for updates on the progress with this.
