Derriford Hospital is the main SHiP hub in Plymouth. We offer STI testing and treatment, HIV care, routine and emergency contraception, and abortion services.

** Men – do not pass urine for at least 2 hours before testing **

Walk-in and wait
Mon to Fri 08:30-10:30
The wait time is typically less than an hour but can be 2 hours on busy days. At times someone might arrive later than you but be seen sooner as they have a booked appointment.

Booked appointments:
Car parking can be difficult, so please arrive at least 10 minutes early to fill in a triage form – this helps us direct you to the appropriate clinician. If you are more than 10 minutes late we will have to put you at the end of the clinic session or ask you to rebook.

Sometimes even booked appointments run late despite our best efforts – we will be doing everything possible to keep to time.
