State-of-the-art reproductive and sexual health service
* Important for all patients that have tested since the 24th April *
Due to an unforeseen IT error all tests completed between the 24th -30th April have been sent it our IT system again replacing any previous communication. This means that you may receive a second text message informing you of your test results. Please do not be concerned any positive results will be followed up by the normal process.
This will mean a slight delay in some results being released, please wait the 10 working days prior to calling the clinic if you have not had your results.
Burrell Street Sexual Health Clinic is the largest and most comprehensive NHS sexual health service in London, and part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
We’re London’s first NHS clinic that’s open seven days a week, offering a full range of sexual health services. Our clinic is run by a team of doctors, HCA’s, nurses and health advisers.
We continue to trial a new appointment system, and have now made appointments available throughout the day to improve access. To book an appointment, please click on Online Bookings below.
We now provide only a limited check-up service for those who are free of symptoms.
Burrell Street can become extremely busy. Demand for our services is very high, and we’re often full to capacity as soon as our doors are open. This means that you may not always be able to see you immediately, and at times there can be a long wait. Please be patient, and we will do what we can to help you.
If you have no symptoms and would like a sexual health screening, you can order a free test kit online that will be delivered discreetly to your home. Order here:
We like to think of Burrell Street as something special:
- We’re the only NHS sexual health service in London open seven days a week
- We provide sexual health screening in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with welcoming staff
- We have the highest quality tests in the UK
- Our results service is among the fastest in London
While you’re waiting to be seen, we offer free wi-fi and freshly ground coffee in a light and airy environment with specially commissioned artworks.
Tests and treatment
Burrell Street offers tests and treatment for all sexually transmitted infections. Where possible we’ll treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – samples need to be sent off to our laboratories and if we find any infection, we’ll contact you immediately to ask you to return for treatment. Other services we offer are:
- One minute HIV testing, and PEP (post exposure prophylaxis). Just ask at the front desk when you arrive at the clinic.
- A contraceptive service with both walk-in and booked appointments. We also offer emergency contraception. Please call the clinic on 020 7188 6666 for further details.
Services for young people under 18
If you’re under 18, you are welcome at all our clinics. We provide a holistic approach to your sexual health, relationship and contraceptive needs or if you’re just worried about something and need to talk. You don’t need to book an appointment – just walk in during our opening hours.
All under 18’s will be assessed by a healthcare professional, and we will ask you about your sexual health, home situation and relationships.
There are many requests for services which are outside of our funding remit, and we have decided to offer those services to you privately. Wherever possible we will offer you the best price available in London. All profit made by these services is returned to the clinic and used to enhance the public environment, purchase medical equipment, and support the training of staff.
