Accessing sexual health services

Free and confidential sexual health advice and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs/STDs) is available at one of our drop-in clinics or by phone 0300 5550279.

Our helpline is open Monday to Thursday 8am to 4.30pm and Friday from 8am to 12.30pm.

You can make an appointment for a smear test at Singleton or Neath Port Talbot by ringing us on this number too.

STIs include: chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhoea. Links to further information on these and other STIs can be found at the bottom of the page.

There are also links at the bottom of the page to further information about contraception such as the contraceptive pill, IUD, diaphragms and emergency contraception.

Drop-in clinics

Please note: All walk-in clinics are a sit-and-wait service. We cannot say how long you will need to wait to be seen, it will be dependent on the number of patients before you and what services they require.  We often have more than one clinic running at the same time so patients attending those clinics may be called before you.

Confidentiality

Whether you need safe sex advice, contraception information or a test for a sexually transmitted infection (STi) our team of specialist staff are on hand to deal with your query in confidence. This means we won’t routinely discuss you with anyone else, including the GP or other hospital services. Unless we feel there is a risk of harm to you or someone else, everything we discuss and do is in the strictest of confidence, even if you are under 16 you have the same rights.

There may be times we need to speak with you about treatment so please let us know how best to contact you. A mobile number is fine but please make sure staff are aware of any changes to your phone number or address. 

Sometimes we may change the clinic opening times and services available on a particular day. Ring us first to check, just in case. And we do shut the clinic if a lot of patients are still waiting to be seen when we are due to close.
