How does the consultation work?

Step 1: Prepare for your appointment

Unless there are medical records or paperwork, we do not require you to bring anything to your appointment.

Step 2: Begin to understand your problem

Part 1: Medical History
We will understand any prior medical conditions that you may have, the GPs and clinics you may have come across on your way and the possible diagnosis/tests/treatments they have offered you.

Part 2: Sexual & Gynaecological History
We will then turn to some personal questions regarding your sexual and contraceptive history.

This will help us determine the risks that you may be at.

Part 3: Physical examination
If you are experiencing symptoms or would like a specialist to examine you, we will proceed to do so.

Female patients will have the option of seeing a female clinician and/or have a female chaperone present.

Step 3: Discuss how to solve this

We will then recommend the exact tests and/or treatments that you may need and run through the costs with you.

We offer plenty of time for this discussion so you can have an in-depth understanding of how best to proceed any ask any questions during this point.

We will only proceed with whatever you are comfortable with.

Step 4: Proceed with the solution

Sexual health tests
We will test for the exact STIs that you may be at risk of and/or worried about. Same day test results are available (in Birmingham).

Results are available in-person, text, email or over the phone.

Treatments
We will provide you with any medications that you need during your appointment (extra charges apply).

Alternately, you can take a prescription to your pharmacist.

Follow ups & referrals
We may ask you to come back in a week or two to make sure that you are recovering well.

If your problem is outside the scope of our speciality, then we will refer you to an NHS/Private hospital.
