Private sexual health appointments

COMING SOON

Our UK-registered nurses are experienced in sexual health screening. All our clinics are regulated and approved by the Care Quality Commission and we treat all our customers with the utmost confidentiality.

Our laboratory partners were selected based on their clinical expertise and have the highest levels of CPA approval and ISO accreditation. We use anonymised patient IDs and revolutionary technology to ensure quick analysis of your samples.

Numbers of new STI diagnoses in 2018 increased by 5% in comparison to 2017. The number of consultations at sexual health services, both in clinic settings and online, increased by 7% between 2017 and 2018.

Dr Gwenda Hughes, Head of STI Surveillance at PHE, said:

“The rise in sexually transmitted infections is concerning. STIs can pose serious consequences to health – both your own and that of current and future sexual partners. No matter what age you are, or what type of relationship you are in, it’s important to look after your sexual health. If you have sex with a new or casual partner, make sure you use condoms and get regularly tested.”

FAQs

A clinic consultation is a risk assessment, completed face to face with one of our specialist health nurses at a London Travel Clinic at a convenient for you. The nurse will assess your individual circumstances and health background before making recommendations on which Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) screen test is right for you. STI tests will be carried out at the same appointment. The screening consultations are best designed for people who are asymptomatic i.e people who have no symptoms of infection.

Sexually transmitted infections require an incubation period before they can become detectable. Each infection takes a varying amount of time before it is able to be detected in a lab testing sample. You should wait 2-3 weeks after exposure for bacterial infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and 28 days after exposure for viral infections such as HIV.

Yes, all our nurses are specially trained in all the services we provide, including travel medicine, sexual health and general and occupational health medicine.
