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 This is currently closed and replaced by telephone triage
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 don’t be late for your appointment – we recommend allowing 30 minutes extra time for late buses or car park queues. If you are more than 10 minutes late your slot will be lost, and you’ll need to rebook. Please understand that we try our hardest to see you on time, but on occasions clinics run late.

If you want to cancel an appointment, please help us by calling the main number above and pressing option 1.
