There are 4 clinics you can book online, please read the descriptions carefully to make sure you choose the correct one.
Symptomatic Appointment: Please choose this option if you think you have signs of a sexually transmitted infection (STI); lumps , bumps or a rash in the genitals, increased or unusual discharge or if a sexual partner has told you that they have been diagnosed with an STI.
Asymptomatic Appointment: Please choose this option if you do not have signs of a sexually transmitted infection (STI); lumps , bumps or a rash in the genitals, increased or unusual discharge. This option is not suitable if a sexual partner has told you that they have been diagnosed with an STI (please choose “symptomatic screen” if that is the case).
Emergency Appointment: Please choose this option if you:
Need PEP as you think you might have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours
Ensure you access your appointment before the 72 hours has elapsed.
Have painful genital ulcers or blisters currently.
If you have severe genital or pelvic pain.
Please note: if you are not an emergency, as outlined, please book a routine STI or asymptomatic STI screen. If none of these are available today, check back tomorrow as more appointments are released daily. If you are unable to get an emergency appointment or the clinic is closed you should attend a GP or an Accident & Emergency Department.
PrEP: PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. PrEP is medication taken by HIV negative people before and after sex, to prevent HIV. Appointments will go live every Wednesday & Thursday one week in advance of clinics.
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.
