About the Service

Highland Sexual Health clinics run throughout Highland and provide: a free, confidential, one-stop service for men and women. The nurses and doctors are specially trained in sexual health and contraception and their aim is to deal with everyone in a friendly, non-judgemental and sensitive way.

  • Contraception including Emergency Contraception and Contraceptive Implants 
  • Testing & Treatment of Sexually Transmitted Infections including HIV 
  • Pregnancy Testing and referral for Termination of Pregnancy 
  • FREE Condoms 
  • Cervical Smear testing 
  • General information and advice regarding sexual health and contraception

We are happy to see people who have symptoms or just want a check-up for sexually transmitted infections. However, please note that most tests are not sensitive enough to pick up an infection as soon as you have caught it, so if you are worried about a particular sexual contact you must wait for at least 10 days after that contact before being tested for infection.
