Worried about infection?

There are some situations when we would definitely like to see you straight away. For example:

  • If you have any symptoms
  • If you have been in contact with someone who has an infection
  • If you need emergency contraception
  • If you have been the victim of a sexual assault

Some infections may not show up immediately (for example, chlamydia and gonorrhoea can take 2 weeks from the time of infection before we can detect it). We may therefore ask you to return at a later date for more tests.

If in doubt, please call and ask to speak to a Health Advisor.


If you need an official certificate to show that you are free from infection, this can be issued at the Oxford (Churchill Hospital) clinic.

It will take two visits, one to have the tests and one to collect the certificate when the results are available.

The fee for this service is £50; you will need to bring photo ID to both appointments.

The test can be done in a drop-in clinic (see clinic opening times), however certificates can only be collected during the following times:

Monday to Friday 0900-1230 and 1300-1600

No appointment is needed.
