GUM (sexual health) clinic

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

  • 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.
