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:
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to fill in a triage form – this helps us direct you to the appropriate clinician.

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