Please note Sandyford clinics will be shut on Monday 28th September 2020 for public holiday.
Sandyford Sexual Health Services has moved to delivering its most urgent services only, due to COVID-19. This is so we can ensure we keep patients and staff safe. This means that in line with government guidelines, we are minimising face-to-face work and prioritising those with the most urgent care needs. We appreciate your patience as we do this. It does mean that we might say you need to wait until the service you need is running again.
If you are in doubt as to whether you need to be seen by the sexual health service telephone 0141 211 8130. Our staff will be able to advise you.
You can only attend clinics if you have made an appointment before you arrive. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, no services are available without an appointment.
Please do not bring any other person with you to your appointment including children, partners, friends or family members. They will be asked to wait outside the building. You are asked to wear a face covering when you attend as per Government advice.
We are committed to providing safe and effective patient care during this time.
