Breakdown of our nurse-led services:

Nurse-led cervical screening: Primary HPV Screening / Co-Test Smear & HPV Sub-Typing

In the UK, the Department of Health recommends that women aged between 25 to 64 years old undergo routine cervical smears every 3 to 5 years. Attending your routine cervical screening can help identify high risk HPV or changes to cervical cells (abnormal cells) early before they develop.

What does it involve?

  • A consultation with a Lead Nurse
  • Cervical screening – a sample will be tested to see if you have a high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • *HPV subtyping – this will be able to inform you of the type of HPV you have
  • A written report emailed or posted to you and /or your GP

*HPV subtyping is included in the ‘Co-Test Smear & HPV Sub-Typing’ nurse-led service.

Nurse-led STI screening packages: (Mini, Essential, and Comprehensive)

Our STI screening packages are advised for women who develop symptoms or are concerned and would like to access their sexual health.

What does it involve?

Mini STI Screen:

  • A consultation with a Lead Nurse
  • You will be tested for chlamydia and Gonorrhoea.
  • A written report emailed or posted to you and /or your GP

Please note, the test can be taken 2 weeks after being exposed to chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. You should not take the test if you have tested positive for chlamydia and Gonorrhoea in the last 6 weeks.

Essential STI Screen:

  • A consultation with a Lead Nurse
  • You will be tested for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis and HIV
  • A written report emailed or posted to you and /or your GP

Please note, the test can be taken 2 weeks after being exposed to chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, 4 weeks for HIV and 3 months for Syphilis.  You should not take the test if you have tested positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea in the last 6 weeks or Syphilis in the past.

Please note, if you think you have been exposed to HIV in the past 72 hours you should seek urgent medical attention at a sexual health clinic, A&E or GP.

HPV Vaccination:

The vaccine should ideally be carried out before sexual debut but as the vaccine protects against all 4 strains (and only 1% of women are exposed to all four types), it is likely that 99% of women are likely to benefit from HPV vaccination. HPV vaccination is relevant for all age groups.

What does it involve?

  • A consultation with a Lead Nurse
  • 3 vaccination injections
  • A written report emailed or posted to you and /or your GP

At an additional cost, we also offer a smear test and HPV Sub-typing which will be able to inform you of the type of HPV you have.
