Sexual health testing clinic at Northcote Surgery

 

At Northcote surgery we run 'Test Only' Clinics to make your routine sexual health check up as easy as possible for you. If you want a full sexual health check up, you don't have any symptoms and you do not need treatment, you can phone 0141 339 3211 for a Test Only appointment with our healthcare assistant or nurses.

When you arrive for your Test Only appointment you will be asked to complete a self taken history form.  The practitioner seeing you will offer you a full sexual health check up which includes tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and HIV.  However, they will not be able to answer any clinical questions you may have about your sexual health or sexually transmitted infections.  If you have any other needs or there are other supports required they will organise the next appropriate appointment for you to have these needs met by a member of the clinical team.

 

If you do not have any symptoms you will not need to be examined by a nurse or doctor.   This means that you can take your own swabs or urine for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea testing.   This could be the following:

  • Men - Urine sample
  • Men and Women who receive anal sex - Self Taken Rectal Swab
  • Women who receive vaginal sex - Self Taken Vaginal Swab
  • The practitioner seeing you will give you instructions and talk you through how to take the self taken tests, there will also be written information to help guide you.
