SAFER SIX offers tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Where possible, we’ll treat you at your first visit. However, not all infections can be diagnosed immediately – sometimes samples need to be sent off to laboratories and if we find any infection, we’ll contact you immediately to ask you to follow-up for treatment.
