We provide asymptomatic screening for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, and HIV, vaccination for Hep B (when we have stocks), and free condoms and lube.
If you have symptoms of a sexual infection or have been told by a partner that you may have been put in contact with a risk, it's best for you to go to a GUM clinic to be tested. GUM clinics are often the clinics attached to a hospital, here they will be able to take a closer look at your symptoms and provide you with the appropriate treatment.
If you are experiencing symptoms of Monkeypox or COVID we ask that you do not attend the clinic, in order to protect the staff and service users. More information about Monkeypox symptoms and what to do if you believe you have monkeypox can be found here: https://www.pitstopplus.org/sti-info/monkeypox/ or https://www.gov.uk/guidance/guidance-for-people-with-monkeypox-infection-who-are-isolating-at-home
We will normally ask you for a urine sample when you test with us. Please make sure you have not urinated for at least 1 hour before you attend the clinic.
We are unable to provide you with PEP or PrEP at the Pitstop Clinic. If you need get PEP, you're strongly advised to go to A&E or contact a local GUM clinic and check they have this medication before attending.
PEP needs to be taken within 72-hours of possible HIV infection. It's best if you begin taking it within 24-hours. For more information on where to obtain these medicines, visit our HIV Prevention web page.
