Sexual health is very important, but we know it can be a slightly embarrassing subject. Fear not we have listed below the places for you to go so that you can get a little help!
If you want to go get tested at a location close to you visit the NHS website Services Locater and it will list all your options. If you are a Harrow student there is a GUM (sexual health clinic) at the Northwick Park Hospital that offers a walk-in service. For those in Central London 56 Dean Street offers a wide range of sexual health services including access to regular screenings and 72-hour risk HIV tests. They specialise in running services for the Trans+/Non-Binary community.
If you are in need of emergency conception then we recommend ringing 111 as they will be able to book you an appointment with a local provider. If you need some guidance around contraception but it’s not an emergency, then please refer to the NHS website and use the service provider to look for a location near you that you can arrange an appointment to speak with a health care provider. There are lots of places both in Central London and Harrow that can offer appointments.
All of the above is covered by the NHS, meaning that there is no charge for STI testing or contraception in the UK if you are entitled to NHS health care.
