Who are the staff who work in this service?

Sexual Problems service staff are a multidisciplinary group and have training in medicine and in sexual problems specifically. The doctors are trained by the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine or other professional organisations. There are both male and female members of staff so we can accommodate personal preferences.

What kind of treatments do you provide?

Both psychodynamic and behavioural methods are used. These are talking therapies but a clinical examination will usually be performed to exclude any physical causes for the sexual problem. Behavioural treatments can involve homework where you may be expected to follow specific exercises or keep a diary. Medication may also be used if appropriate and your therapist will discuss with you which treatment option might suit you best.

Making an Appointment

Any healthcare professional can refer you to the sexual problems service.

Alternatively you can call 0141 211 8130 for an appointment.

The phone lines are open Mondays to Fridays from 8.45am - 4.15pm, except public holidays.

Waiting times

The waiting time to be seen can be 3 - 6 months although we are trying to reduce this. As a result of this demand, if you are unable to attend your appointment we would be most grateful if you contact us as soon as possible, so that the appointment can be allocated to someone else.

There are a number of self help sources available which may be of help to you while you wait for your appointment. We recommend the following:
