Sexual Health Care and Sexually Transmitted Diseases

We provide a confidential and quick service for the diagnosis and treatment of Sexual Transmitted Disease’s:

  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea (simple urine test)
  • Trichomonas Vaginalis (swab test)
  • Syphilis (blood test)
  • HIV screening (blood test)
  • Hepatitis B (blood test)
  • Hepatitis C (blood test)
  • Cervical cancer screening (smear test)

STD’s are very common with many different strains. Two thirds of the diseases occur in people under the age of 25.

Many people may not show any symptoms but they are still able to pass on the infection to their partner.  That’s why it is important to be screened regularly and any potential infection identified and treated.

Prevention is possible by practising safe sex but if you do develop a disease it is essential to start treatment straight away, as left untreated, STD’s increase your risk of complications and can also lead to infertility.

Depending on the test required, urine, swabs and blood samples are all that is needed and results are usually back in a few days.

Treatment for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia is very easy with a short course of antibiotics required. If you happen to be infected it is advisable to contact your partner(s) for them to be screened and treated.

We provide councelling for HIV testing and Hepatitis B +C testing.
