Sandwell Clinics

Sexual health clinics in Sandwell

Sometimes it’s better to speak to someone who can answer all your questions face to face.

We run two clinics in the borough where you can get advice, information, STI tests and more. You may need to visit one of our clinics if you receive a positive STI test result.

Both clinics offer bookable appointments or you can simply drop in for a chat when it’s most convenient.

What are the clinics like?

Our clinics are also designed to help you with any sexual health problem, concern or question you have.

They’re staffed by friendly, expert staff who deal with sexual health issues all the time and understand how you might be feeling if something’s on your mind.

You’ll be able to speak to someone in private about STIs, emergency contraception or anything else sexual health related. The clinics can also give you home STI testing kits to take away with you.

  • Lyng Centre for Health and Social Care, Frank Fisher Way, West Bromwich, B70 7AW

What happens if my test results are positive?

If your results are positive first of all there is no need to panic. Almost all STIs can either be cured or managed effectively. This includes HIV.

You may need to come into the clinic to speak to one of our staff, but don’t worry: they are well rehearsed in these issues, will help to put your mind at ease and give you all the information you need.

Firstly, they will talk to you about your results: what infection you have, what this means for you and the type of treatment is will involve. They will help organise the next steps for you and be able to answer any questions you may have about the results.

Following your course of treatment, you may need another test to check whether the treatment has worked but your doctor or nurse will be able to advise you.

It is important that you also understand the importance of telling any current or previous partners but they’ll be able to talk you through the different ways to do this.
