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.
Because of the current COVID19 situation our normal services are curtailed. We are keeping this under continuous review and working towards resumption of normal services when it is safe to do so.
HIV service – The HIV service will continue but with some restrictions. If you have an appointment please attend at the allocated appointment time. If you have a supply of medication you may wish to defer your appointment. If you have any questions or concerns please call 01 4103539 and leave a message with your name, hospital number and phone number. A member of staff will return your call as soon as possible. Please note, this phone number is for patients who attend the HIV service only.
STI service – There will be no Emergency Appointments available via www.swiftqueue.com from the 9th of February for a period of seven days. We are accepting patients with a referral letter. Referral letters can be sent from your GP via Healthlink.
