John Hunter Clinic for Sexual Health (JHC)


John Hunter Clinic is a friendly, confidential and free NHS sexual health clinic based on the 3rd Floor of St Stephen’s Centre (opposite Tesco) next to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

We offer sexual health testing (chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, HIV, hepatitis, warts, herpes, LGV and trichomonas), an extensive range of contraceptives, emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, vaccinations, sexual infection treatment and advice, as well as other specialised services.

If you have never had a check-up we recommend you come along and have a sexual health screen as it is common to have a sexually transmitted infection and not be aware of it.

We are open Monday to Friday with three evening clinics on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays. Appointments can be booked online or over the phone.

If you require contraception you can book an appointment online for the Family Planning service at John Hunter Clinic. For Implants and IUD/IUS coil fittings please book an appointment by calling 020 3315 6699.
