Sandyford continues to comply with Public Health guidelines. 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 are working hard to return to our normal service levels including reopening our Connect Hubs.
Please do not attend Sandyford if you have Mpox, COVID-19 or are showing symptoms of either.

Therefore, if you are under taking a STI test in a commercial venue or at home you may wish to check if it is a NHS run project.
