GU (Genitourinary) Medicine 

The GU Medicine department provides advice, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections including HIV and some other genital conditions.

We offer a free, friendly and completely confidential service for general advice, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STI's).  All our staff are skilled and friendly and are able to address the needs of all age groups.

The GU Medicine department also has its own psychologist.  If you want to talk to him, ask a Health Adviser or Doctor.  Treatment is available for distressing memories, anxiety, panics, depression, relationship problems or other problems, which can be caused by bad life events such as rape, childhood abuse or assaults.
