What if I need treatment?

We are able to diagnose and treat many conditions during your appointment.  Our clinics stock the most common treatments and we try to give you what you need whilst you are with us.  Our treatments are completely free and you do not need to take a prescription to a pharmacy.  If we are sending your tests away for analysis and the results show you need treatment, we will contact you and arrange for you to get your medication.

If you have an STI, your sexual partners may also need treatment.  We will discuss how we can help to arrange this, whether you are able to do this on your own or if you would like us to help.

'I feel it is important to relay my experience back to let the staff know they are doing a brilliant job! I would like them to know I appreciated all they did for myself, my family and our beautiful baby girl.'
