At Spire Cardiff Hospital we offer a dedicated Sexual Health Clinic.
We understand that being tested and treated for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) may be stressful. That is why we offer a straightforward and highly confidential service.
Our confidential clinic offers patients a consultation with a specialist Genitourinary Medicine Consultant which may involve history taking and an examination. Your consultant will then discuss any test required and treatment options.
The only people that know what tests are being undertaken are you and your consultant, there is no need to feel embarrassed.
The clinic is run by Dr A Abdullah, consultant in genitourinary medicine and a specialist on Sexual Health Testing. Dr. Abdullah will see patients who have been in contact with infections, as well as patients who would like to be screened to exclude infection.
For further information or to arrange an initial consultation call us on 029 2073 6011.
Many hospitals offer a sexual health or GUM clinic to test for sexually transmitted infections. These include:
- HIV and Hepatitis
These tests are performed either by taking a blood sample, a swab or urine sample which is analysed in our laboratories.
