The clinic at Derriford is sign posted your Sexual Health in Plymouth. It can be found by entering the hospital through the maternity entrance opposite the multi-storey car park or down the side road to the left of the maternity block.

The reception has 3 windows. Window 1 is for those attending the walk in and wait clinic, 2 and 3 are for those with booked appointments.

If this is your first visit to our clinic, please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time in order to complete a triage form. If you are revisiting for a new reason, you will also be asked to complete a triage form. This is to ensure you are seen by the most appropriate clinician. This form can be found in the foyer as you enter the dept. This form should be completed prior to checking in at reception in order to ensure a smooth patient care pathway.

This is our newest addition to the service. You can order your free test online today. It consists of a mouth swab test for HIV which you can perform in your own home. It does not require any blood and you only have to wait 20 minutes for your result.
