Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are passed from one person to another through unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex, sharing sex toys and by genital contact. Many STIs have no symptoms but can cause serious health problems if left untreated.
It is free to have a STI test and treatment. If you think you have been at risk it is important to get tested. Please call our central booking line to make an appointment on 01159 627 627.

Mpox information for patients
Mpox is a rare viral infectious disease. It is usually a mild self-limiting illness, spread by very close contact with someone with mpox and most people recover within a few weeks
A sustained reduction in mpox (monkeypox) case numbers across England and the success of vaccination in helping to control the outbreak means the vaccination programme is no longer needed as an outbreak control measure and can now be wound down. Anyone eligible for mpox vaccination is urged to come forward for the vaccine in the coming months to protect themselves before the summer.
If you’re eligible, there’s still time to get your 1st, 2nd or both doses to get protected.
