We are able to arrange all recommended screening procedures for you and your baby, during pregnancy. We also offer counselling for couples coping with infertility and contraceptive procedures for various types of birth control.

If necessary, we can refer our patients to a Clinical Psychologist, Social Worker, Counsellor or Women’s Health Physiotherapist.

STD & STI Testing Clinic

At Bardon Rainworth Medical Centre we are committed to providing high standards of care in a friendly environment. Our services are easily accessible with provision of care focused around each of our patients.

Sexual health is just as important as physical and mental health. Ignoring any symptoms can considerably impact quality of life. We offer a multidisciplinary service to screen, test, and treat patients with sexually transmitted diseases/infections (STDs/STIs).

Some of the more common STIs are:

Chlamydia

Gonorrhoea

Genital herpes

Genital warts

HIV/AIDS

Syphilis

Viral Hepatitis

STDs are mostly serious conditions that require immediate treatment and therefore unprotected sex is best avoided until both you and your partner have been screened. Prevention is better than cure. Some infections, such as HIV, cannot be cured and are a chronic condition but some can be treated with antibiotics or antivirals. Symptoms can vary and can often be difficult to recognise.

If you have started a new sexual relationship or think you may have an STI then it is important to schedule appointment for STD testing.
