Once patients have registered, they are asked not to leave the waiting area without informing a member of staff.
Patients who are asked to return for a follow up consultation will be given a specific appointment time.
** Friday afternoon clinic
This is a nurse led clinic offering testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and contraception. This clinic cannot see patients with complex problems and we recommend attendance at a different time.
Before visiting the department
All patients are asked that if possible, they try not to pass urine for a few hours prior to attending clinic because it can affect test results. Some patients are asked to provide a sample of urine during their visit.
There is often more than one clinic taking place at a time so patients are advised that on occasion it may appear as if a patient arriving later may be seen earlier. The department understands how frustrating this may seem but makes every effort to call patients through as soon as possible.
Verbal or physical abuse towards fellow patients or staff is not acceptable.
What happens when you visit the department?
Patients will see a doctor or nurse practitioner who will take a history of the problem and ask routine questions about health.
If necessary, a nurse will arrange tests to be carried out. These tests may look for a range of genital infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea.
Patients may also be asked to supply a routine sample of urine and it may be necessary for some patients to provide a sample of blood.
What if an urgent appointment is needed and the clinic is closed?
Patients who think they need to be seen urgently, for example following a needlestick injury or suspected exposure to HIV, hepatitis B or C should attend the Accident and Emergency department in the main hospital as soon as possible following the incident.
