Sexual Health Clinic

Our small private clinic offers the highest level of discretion and care when it comes to sexual health services. Your confidentiality is one of our key priorities when attending this service.

Our consultations and tests are tailored to people who have symptoms and want to discuss these privately with a GP, or those who may have been at risk of contracting a STI from a sexual partner, or for those who don’t have symptoms but are sexually active and want to check to their current sexual health.

We are committed to exceptional patient centred care at a time that suits you. We offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.

Our services include a comprehensive range of STI tests, including HIV testing, all of which are done with our lab partners based in Glasgow, and you will get you results within a few days.

If you need ongoing treatment and support after testing we will be available for you. If you have a positive result for any STI, you’ll be able to speak to one of our GPs to discuss your next steps and treatment plan.

If you any concerns regarding your sexual health please contact our clinic for an appointment and further advice. 

All staff at Doc Plus are committed to delivering safe and satisfactory outcome. You will always have an initial consultation with your practitioner, which will include a full review of your medical and sexual history along with any current symptoms. We will then go through testing that will be required, what each test involves and the costs.

On the day of testing, it is recommended that you eat and drink as normal and feel well in yourself prior to attending. Before a cervical smear test, it is important to refrain from having sexual intercourse for 24 hours to make sure the results are accurate. Unfortunately, we cannot do a smear test during your period as it interferes with the results. Should this occur when testing is due, we will happily re-arrange another appointment.

After any of the testing you can carry on as normal. After blood tests it is normal to experience slight tenderness or mild bleeding or bruising at the site the needle was inserted.

After a cervical smear or vaginal swab, you may experience slight spotting/light bleeding. This is normal and should resolve quickly but if you experience any heavy bleeding or discomfort, please contact the clinic immediately.

Blood results may be available as quickly as 24 hours. Other tests such as smears and vaginal swabs may take up to 10 days. Results can be given in the form of a telephone, email, or face to face consultation. This is included in the overall cost.

After HPV vaccination it is common to get injection site pain, swelling and redness. An additional leaflet will be provided with more details.

All patient information is treated as highly confidential and will not be shared with third parties. Furthermore, when you register with us, we will agree certain methods of communication by which you would like to receive correspondence / information and only that method will be used. When you receive appointment reminders, they will not show that they have come from our clinic and there will be no reference to the appointment type on this correspondence. The same approach applies when you attend for your appointments.

If you wish we can agree a 4-digit PIN number for you to use, which you will be asked for when enquiring about your appointments or medical information, which you must provide before any further information can be provided.

Some STDs won’t be detectable immediately after sex, so you should wait an appropriate amount of time before getting tested; most STD tests are accurate after 14 days after sexual contact. STDs including chlamydia and gonorrhoea can show up on tests two weeks after exposure.

Other STDs may take longer before they can be detected. For example, if you’re testing for HIV, you should wait at least 28 days after your last sexual encounter to get tested.

Here are some STIs with more information about how long you should wait and how it’s tested for:

  • Chlamydia – 14 days – urine or swab
  • Gonorrhoea – 14days – urine or swab
  • HIV – 2-4 weeks – blood
  • Syphilis – 14 days – blood
  • Genital Herpes – 14 days – blood, urine or swab
  • Hepatitis B – 28 days – blood
  • Hepatitis C – 28 days – blood

No test for any STD is 100% accurate. Some STIs don’t show up right away. It could take an infection anywhere from a couple of days to a few months to show up in testing. But if you think you have a STI, get tested. You may have to go back again to get tested if you test negative. Even if you test negative, keep practicing safe sex. Talk to your health care provider about speaking with a counsellor if you have concerns.

In most cases you can be seen within a couple of days from when the appointment is booked if you have any concerns. If the results are positive, we will be able to help you get you treatment as soon as possible after this.
