PrEP is now available through the NHS. Click here for more information on PrEP.

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we no longer offer a walk-in service.

We operate a telephone helpline 7 days a week. Please call us. We will offer patients who meet certain criteria either a face to face appointment in clinic, or a telephone call from a clinician.

The number of appointment slots varies daily depending on staffing.

Please do not attend our clinics unless you have spoken to a member of staff on the phone first, and they have confirmed that you have an appointment.

If you have been in contact with someone who has Coronavirus (COVID-19) or you have a new continuous cough or temperature or a loss/change in sense of smell or taste, you must tell us this information on the phone before we book an appointment.

About us

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 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.

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.

All under 18’s will be assessed by a healthcare professional, and we will ask you about your sexual health, home situation and relationships.

For more information for young people on sexual health and contraception take a look at the  FPA website FPA – the Sexual Health Company website  or Brook Brook website

Private Services

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.
