Sexual Health Checks
At the Docs we have a great deal of experience dealing with sex in the city. This confidential service is currently only accessible to our registered patients. We have a dedicated specialist nurse practitioner who can perform full sexual health screens. This includes blood tests and swabs as required. We also provide a complete course of treatment and follow up for most sexually shared infections. If you need specialist care we will refer you to your clinic of choice.
To discuss or access these services please book an appointment via reception with one of our nurses.
For advice on contraception, please book to see a nurse or doctor. We do not offer coil or cap fitting, or implant insertion, but you can get these at family planning clinics.
We provide a “same day” HIV testing service on any day with prior arrangement and a routine HIV monitoring service.
The Docs offers a dedicated clinic for long term HIV care. This NWID service provides holistic HIV care: bringing together a primary care perspective with specialist consultant knowledge.
This service offers the opportunity of having HIV managed entirely in a GP setting.
