At the Portobello Clinic we can offer highly confidential screening and treatment, by a doctor specialising in sexual health medicine.
Testing for sexually transmitted deseases involves taking a detailed history of the problem, examination of the area followed by a blood test, urine test and often (although not always) a swab being taken – this would take around 30 minutes.
Results can sometimes be given immediately and treatment provided there and then. Sometimes we have to wait one or two days for results to come back from our laboratory, when the doctor will call you personally to explain the findings.
If you need treatment, this can be sent to you directly or you can collect the medication from our reception the same day as we have a pharmacy on site.
