We run booked clinics at all venues and ‘walk-in and wait’ sessions at Derriford Hospital and the Zone. Our friendly, non-judgemental specialist healthcare professionals are on hand to help.

Our main clinics are at Derriford Hospital, the Cumberland Centre and The Zone, and we run satellite clinics at other locations on certain days of the week. Not all these smaller clinics offer all services on all days.

If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will need to rebook for a later time or another day. If you want to cancel an appointment, please call the main number above and press option 1.

Free condoms are available at all SHiP sites, or as part of the C-Card scheme at various sites C-Card sites across the city.

We have a zero tolerance policy to verbal or physical abusive behaviour against our staff.
