St. James's Hospital is a university teaching hospital attached to Trinity College School of Medicine, Nursing and Social Science. The GUIDE service is very active in teaching future doctors, nurses and social workers. Medical and nursing students rotate through our department under supervision to gain a wide experience in clinical care to ensure that they are well trained health care providers of the future.
The department also plays an active role in the postgraduate education of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and social workers.
We are introducing online bookings for the Guide Clinic. For the initial Phase of the project, we are only catering for Non-Symptom STI Screening Tests and PrEP clinic appointments. We will look to bring other Appointment Types online soon, but for now only those patients with no symptoms can book online. For all other patients please see the Coming to See Us area of the website.

Vaccinations against Monkeypox are currently not yet available at the GUIDe Clinic. This website will be updated as information is made available to us.
