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.

Monkeypox information for patients

Monkeypox is a rare viral infectious disease. There are a number of cases currently in the UK.

It is usually a mild self-limiting illness, spread by very close contact with someone with monkeypox and most people recover within a few weeks.

The virus can spread if there is close contact between people and the risk to the UK population is low. However, recent cases are predominantly in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, and as the virus spreads through close contact, we are advising these groups to be alert to any unusual rashes or lesions on any part of their body.
