Sexual health services in Nottingham and South Nottinghamshire are led by Nottingham University Hospital Trust.
We help over 28,000 people every year with contraception and concerns about sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Our services are not confined to our hospitals; we run community clinics across Nottingham.
Your GP or other healthcare professional may refer you to our clinic. However, the service is open access, which means you do not need to be seen by anyone else before attending. All you need is an appointment.
All our services are strictly confidential for all of our patients, no matter the age or circumstance. Information our patients give us is not shared with anyone outside our sexual health service without the consent of our patients, unless it is necessary to protect someone from serious harm. Our higher standards of confidentiality are discussed with patients when they first attend our service.
We are based at two main locations: The Genitourinary (GU) Medicine building at City Hospital, and Victoria Health Centre in the City Centre. We also run more than 30 community clinics at health centres, schools, colleges and youth centres across Nottingham City and South Nottinghamshire.
To book an appointment at any of the clinics we run, please phone 01159 627 627, between 8.30am and 7pm Monday to Friday.
Note that our community clinics may not always be able to provide a full range of services.
The GU Medicine building is located just inside Gate 2 of the City Hospital campus on Hucknall Road (NG5 1PB). It is open Monday and Tuesday from 9am to 7pm, Wednesday from 9am to 5pm, Thursday from 1pm to 7pm and Friday from 9am to 1pm.

What to expect
When you arrive at one of our clinics you will be asked to register your details, even if we have seen you before. Your details will only be used by the sexual health service, and only to help with your treatment. Information about confidentiality is available. You will most likely need to wait in a shared waiting area until the healthcare team can see you. Other patients will not know the reason why you are attending and they will be attending for a wide variety of reasons themselves.
A nurse may be present to assist the doctor during any examination. If you have any concerns about this then please discuss them with the doctor. If you would like a friend or partner to be present during your examination then please tell the nurse or doctor.
The sexual health service uses a telephone interpretation system for some of the services we provide. For some appointments an interpreter may be present in the room.
