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.
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.
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.
Aged 18 and under?
Then you can visit Victoria Health Centre on Monday and Wednesday 2 - 6pm for the young people's Drop-in clinic where young people will be seen even without an appointment.
College Outreach Clinics for Students
Nottingham Sexual Health Services works with the following college's to offer services during term-time:
Nottingham College City Hub - Tuesday during term-time
Bilborough College - Mondays and Fridays during term-time
All our services are strictly confidential for all of our patients, no matter the age or circumstance. The 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.
If you have communication support needs to enable you to access the Nottingham Integrated Sexual Health services and you are unable to use or access a telephone or the on-line booking or are unable to ask a GP to refer you to the service, please use the Accessibility tools icon at the top of the page, next to the orange search icon and you will be directed to further help.
