Sandyford Home

Welcome to Sandyford - the specialist sexual health service for
Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Here you will find information primarily about Sandyford specialist sexual health services for Greater Glasgow and Clyde. There are links to NHS Inform and other organisations for information regarding sexual health topics. There is also patient information pre and post appointments. 

Service Updates

Sandyford continues to comply with Public Health guidelines on Monkeypox and COVID-19. To ensure the health and safety of both patients and staff, we still require face masks to be worn at all times for those that are able.

We remain an appointment only service for our clinics.

We have a limited numbers of appointments (which will be released periodically) available for eligible patients still requiring their FIRST monkeypox vaccine and living in Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  For more information, visit our Monkeypox Information page.

 

Booking appointments online

Online is the easiest and fastest way to book an appointment. If there are no appointments available for the service you would like please try again on another day. Appointments are usually opened up on a regular basis. The phone service do not have any other appointments available for the service. You can also reschedule and cancel appointments online. 

Booking contraception appointments online

We understand that some people are finding it difficult to obtain a contraception appointment online.

We do acknowledge that the number of appointments we have currently can outstrip the number of patients looking for an appointment. This means that once we have added a clinic the appointments get booked up very quickly. This is why we recommend checking as often as you are able to look for an available appointment.

Prior to the pandemic, many GP surgeries were carrying out these contraception appointments within their own surgeries, however this service has not yet resumed again for all of them. This has therefore significantly increased the number of patients looking to access this service within all of our Sandyford sites. A number of GP practices do offer contraceptive appointments though. You can check with your own GP practice if this is available.

Booking appointments by phone

Where a Sandyford Service cannot be booked online, please feel free to book an appointment by phone. You will find direct contact information for services on their dedicated page if they have a direct number. Otherwise please call our main phone number 0141 211 8130

Attending your appointment

Please ensure that you arrive at Sandyford around 10 minutes before your appointment is due to start. This is so that you can register before you attend your appointment. 

Children – Children will not always be allowed into your appointment with you. This is because it is not always safe to have children in the clinical room. You are welcome to bring an adult with you, to Sandyford to look after your children when you attend your appointment, as we do not have childcare facilities available. If you do bring children with you without another adult, the clinician may decide the procedure needs to be rearranged.
