Sexual Health Services

The Sexual Health Service operates across some GP practices in Lancaster, offering free and confidential sexually transmitted infection screening, peace of mind checks and HIV testing.

Our sexual health service is:

  • Free: There are no prescription costs if you require treatment
  • Confidential: Nothing is recorded on your main GP record because the sexual health service keeps its own confidential records
  • For everyone: We welcome people of all ages with or without symptoms, and are registered to any GP practice. You do not have to be registered with a Lancaster GP to use the service, and
  • Non-judgemental: Our friendly and experienced team are here to support you and your sexual health.

What to Expect

Details of your attendance at this clinic are completely confidential and you will be allocated a personal clinic number. The clinic has separate notes which do not leave the surgery. Your GP will not be informed of your visit here unless you were referred with a letter. If you are a patient at the practice these records will be kept separate from all your other medical records.

At first you will be asked some quite personal questions, this enables us to decide what tests are required and treatment needed. What you tell us is treated in the strictest of confidence so please be honest, we are not going to be shocked by what you tell us. You will then have swabs taken and a blood test offered.

Please ensure you give us at least 2 methods of contact. If any of your test results are positive we will contact you within 2 weeks by the contact methods you provided.

All treatment is free, you will either be treated on the day you attend or when your results are back.
