Administrative staff are responsible for the administration of patient attendance, including welcoming and registering patients. They work closely with doctors and nurses to ensure smooth running of the clinics.
The doctors treat and manage patients with symptoms, manage patients who require a contraceptive procedure and train other healthcare professionals who want to expand their skills and knowledge in sexual health.
Our health advisors will call you if you are found to have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and will arrange with you to return to the clinic (of your choice) for treatment, if necessary. They will also assist you, if you choose, to contact any sexual partner(s) who may have had contact with infection - this is called partner notification,.
They also see younger patients to help to establish if there are any concerns or worries.
Our nurses treat and manage patients with symptoms, manage patients who require a contraceptive procedure, , give test results and administer treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Nurses will also prescribe contraception, including emergency hormonal contraception (also known as the morning-after pill), and perform contraceptive procedures, such as inserting implants or intrauterine devices (IUDs).
