Our sexual health centres are professional, friendly and discreet. You’ll be dealing with professionals, who won’t be judging your lifestyle or the choices you make.
We offer free contraception as well as testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). You don’t need to make an appointment, and any test results are given to you as quickly as possible – sometimes on the same day.
If you want sexual health advice or you are worried that you might have a sexually transmitted infection, then please come and see us. Our health advisors are extremely experienced, down to earth, and will be happy to help. We see people who are straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, working in the sex trade, under 16… whoever you are, and whatever your concern, we are here to support you with practical services and independent advice.
Our clinical team is at the cutting edge of sexual health research and we often have a number of research studies on offer. These include looking at ways of getting treatment to people online; new ways of helping sex partners of people with STIs to get treated quickly and easily; evaluations of new STI tests; and HIV prevention studies.
Our services include:
Tests for sexually transmitted infections
Fast results - sometimes while you wait
Sexual health check-ups
At most of our centres, you can just walk in – no appointment required. Or if you prefer, you can reserve a slot online – this will save you time on the day.
Please only use All East if your home postcode comes under LB of Redbridge, LB of Waltham Forest, LB of Newham or LB of Tower Hamlets, as they will only take patients who live in an East End London Borough.
