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.
The following temporary changes are required:
Book, cancel & reschedule PrEP appointments online.
How does PrEP fit in with Safer Sex?
PrEP is not a catch-all safer sex strategy, it only protects against HIV infection. You could still get other STIs like gonorrhoea, syphilis and chlamydia. As condoms are still the best way to prevent these and other STIs we recommend that you use condoms too. As part of taking PrEP you will be asked to have regular HIV and STI tests to ensure the medication is working. This means if you're taking PrEP you will have regular opportunities to discuss your sexual health needs with health professionals.
All the information you need about your visit to Sandyford. Before, during and after the appointment.
