What happens when you come to a clinic? - Sexual Health Screening

When you come to the clinic the receptionist will give you a form to fill in, including some personal details such as name and date of birth and a few questions about your reason for attending the clinic. Depending on what you put on this form you will be seen by a doctor or nurse and you may have to wait to be seen. The tests that are taken will not have your name on them.

You will have a discussion with a doctor or nurse about your general health, any symptoms and about your sexual activity.

Not everyone will need an examination; if you do have an examination you will be offered a chaperone.

Everyone is offered tests for gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis and HIV infection. Some people will need tests for herpes, hepatitis B or hepatitis C.

Some of the tests may be taken by you, others may need to be taken by a doctor or nurse.

Important information:

All male patients are required NOT to pass urine for at least 60 minutes prior to seeing the doctor or nurse. This is especially important for chlamydia testing. 

What happens when you come to a clinic? - Contraception

When you come to the clinic the receptionist will give you a form to fill in, including some personal details such as name and date of birth and your reason for attending the clinic. You will have a discussion about your general health and then a discussion about which methods of contraception are suitable for you. Some methods require a second visit for fitting or insertion - this will be discussed at the time with you and an appointment will be made. You will also be offered sexual health screening (see above).

Confidentiality: protecting your confidentiality

Making sure that all visits and contacts with us are confidential is very important to all the clinic staff. This applies to doctors, nurses, health advisors and administrative staff, including receptionists, secretaries and managers.

No identifiable information is passed to anyone or any agency without your permission, except when it is essential for providing urgent care or necessary to protect somebody’s health, safety or well being.

We have a stand alone notes system that is not linked to the main hospital or to GP surgeries.

Please talk to us if you have any concerns about confidentiality.

 

Under 16 and worried about confidentiality?

 

The same level of confidentiality applies to young people, including those that are under 16. This means that you can tell others about your visit but we won’t.

 

The only reason we might have to consider passing on information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from harm.

We would always try to discuss this with you first.

 

There is always someone here to listen to your concerns and provide support.
