About the GUM clinic
We are a specialist outpatient clinic offering a free and confidential service for anyone with a sexual health concern.
We offer a range of services, including:
- testing and treatment for
sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
- advice and information about sexual health
- free condoms
- emergency contraception
- pregnancy testing
- HIV testing
- PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis). You take this medication before sex to reduce the risk of HIV transmission. PrEP protects people who are HIV negative, but are at high risk of contracting the virus. Islanders eligible for this treatment include:
- men who have sex with men
- transgender women who have sex with men
- HIV negative partners of HIV positive individuals
- those at high risk of getting HIV
- PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) medication that can help prevent people from developing HIV if they've been exposed to it
- Hepatitis B vaccination, excludes travel vaccination
- HPV, for men who have sex with men aged 45 and under
- clinical care for people who have been sexually assaulted
- specialist cervical screening clinics for HIV positive individuals, transgender men and non-binary individuals
All of our services are confidential.
We're based at the end of Corridor C of the Gwyneth Huelin Wing at the General Hospital.
