In response to COVID-19, the way we provide our service has changed but we are still here for you
All new attendances to our sexual health service will operate on an appointment-only basis. Walk-in clinics are postponed until further notice.
Please call us on 0300 123 1678 for more information or to book a telephone appointment. Lines are open 8am to 6pm Monday and Wednesday 8am to 5pm Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. Patients will be triaged on the telephone and, if appropriate, a face-to-face appointment organised at the Clover Street Clinic in Chatham. Staff will wear full PPE and ask that anyone attending a face-to-face appointment wear a face covering if they are able to do so.
Please call your local pharmacy to check opening times before you visit as these might have changed recently.
