Sexual Health Services at Brighton Station Health Centre

We offer a discreet and confidential sexual health clinic every day between the hours of 8am-7pm, with bookable and walk-in appointments.

Walk-in appointments are available between 9am-11:40am and again from 2:30pm-6:30pm.

Please note that the Walk-in Centre may be closed to any new patients presenting if there are already sufficient patients waiting to be seen. 
Patients being turned away will be advised of alternatives.

Pre-bookable appointments are available between 8am-8:40am and 1:30pm-2:10pm. You can pre-book an appointment by calling 0333 321 0946.

What the service provides

Anyone can use the sexual health service – there is no need to be registered with Brighton Station Health Centre GP practice.

The sexual health service can provide testing, treatment and advice for patients but some requests we are unable to process and we will advise you to see an alternative service.

We CAN offer:

  • Full sexual health screening (including HIV testing) and treatment where required
  • Diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis and thrush
  • Assessment and treatment of warts
  • Assessment and initial treatment of symptomatic genital herpes
  • Repeat contraceptive pills
  • Emergency contraception

We CANNOT offer:

  • Post exposure prophylaxis for HIV (PEP)
  • Long acting contraceptives such as coils and implants
  • Long term management of conditions such as Herpes, HIV, and Syphilis
  • Cervical smear tests
  • Liquid nitrogen treatment (freezing) for warts (other treatments are available here)

When should I test?

There is a period of time known as the ‘window period’ where it may be too early to get accurate results. For HIV and Syphilis 99.9% infection will show up in blood tests after 4 weeks. For Chlamydia and Gonnorhoea the tests should be accurate after 2 weeks. We can still test you within this period, but be aware your tests may not reflect any recently acquired infection.

Who can see my notes?

The sexual health service keeps confidential notes. These are kept separate from your general medical records. We will not inform your GP of your attendance or share information which identifies you without informing you first. In circumstances where we believe either your safety or the safety of someone else is at risk we may share information with other professional agencies, but we will try to inform you before sharing this information.
