PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING OUR SERVICE
Pages updated 30-Jul-2020
In order to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have put in processes to ensure we can help you if you need to access Sexual Health services. Our services are running differently in order to keep patients and staff safe, which means that we are not able to offer the normal range of services and appointments. However, we continue to provide both urgent and some non-urgent care.
We have temporarily suspended our normal appointment booking procedure. This includes closing our online booking system.
Please call 0300 300 2016 if you feel you need to be seen. If clinically appropriate you will be contacted by a member of our clinical team and assessed by phone. If we cannot help you over the phone you will be allocated a time to attend clinic. Based on your need we may not be able to offer you a telephone assessment on the day you call us. You may be advised to call back the next day when more telephone assessment slots are made available. Where possible we encourage the use of our Online Test Kit service, as well as access to information on Sexual Health.
We must be clear that you must not attend the clinic unless a Doctor or Nurse rings you and you are told to attend.
Please do not bring anyone with you to the clinic.
If you have been asked to attend clinic you must be wearing a face covering on arrival and for the duration of your visit. Details on how to wear and make a face covering can be read here.
Please see our COVID-19 FAQs for further information.
We also have guides for professionals & parents, and young people regarding Sexual Health and COVID-19.
Please visit the Solent NHS Trust information page.
