Sunflower service

Our Sunflower service caters to the specific needs of people who work in the sex and adult entertainment industries.

The Sunflower Clinic is a dedicated walk-in service at Heart of Hounslow Health Centre on Tuesdays from 9am–12 noon. There is no need to book an appointment.

Alternatively, you can book a routine appointment at any of our clinics and ask for a Sunflower appointment. This will ensure we offer you the most appropriate service.

Can I get everything done at my visit to the Sunflower Clinic?

We will try our best to do everything you need at your visit. If we can’t, for some reason, we will arrange another appointment, offer you an alternative, or direct you to a more suitable service.

Will you tell anyone that I have been to the clinic?

We provide a confidential service to all our patients—this means we will not talk about your visit to anyone outside of the clinic without your permission. However, if we have concerns about your safety, or the safety of another person, we may need to share this information with the safeguarding team. We will always try to ensure you are involved in these conversations.

We ask for your GP details, but we do not contact them without your permission. However, if you do not have a GP, or prefer not to give us their details, we will still see you.

You can give us your working name or real name, it’s up to you—but we require your real date of birth please.

Attending our service will not be reported to the police or immigration so it will not affect any ongoing cases you may be involved with.

Who will I see at the clinic?

When you arrive at the clinic, you will be booked in by one of reception staff who will confirm your details. It is important that you provide an up-to-date mobile number to ensure you receive your results.

Depending on the reason for your visit, you may be seen by a doctor, nurse practitioner, staff nurse, healthcare assistant and/or sexual health adviser.
