STI screening and treatment
We offer testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Services available in our STI Testing and Treatment Service include:
- Express sexual health screening service for people who have no symptoms
- Online postal testing service for people with no symptoms (THIS SERVICE IS NOT YET AVAILABLE)
- Sexual health screening in our clinics
Express sexual health screening
At many of our services we run 'Express' Clinics to make your routine sexual health check up as easy as possible for you. If you want a full sexual health check up, you don't have any symptoms and you do not need treatment, you can either walk-in or phone for an appointment.
When you arrive for your Express clinic appointment you will be asked to complete a self taken history form. The practitioner seeing you will offer you a full sexual health check up. However, they will not be able to answer any clinical questions you may have about your sexual health or sexually transmitted infections. You will not need to be examined by a practitioner.
Online postal testing
If you"re aged 16 or over you can request a free STI self-sampling kit. You can use the kit to take your own samples at home and send them back to us for free. We'll test your samples and let you know the results by text message.

Screening in clinics
We recommend you attend our services if you:
- Have symptoms
- Are at higher risk of sexually transmitted infections
- Have had sex with someone with a confirmed STI
- Want to see a health care professional
- Are worried or have questions
The types of tests you'll have will vary depending on your situation and on why you're worried. A nurse or doctor will explain what tests you need and why.
