This vaccine prevents you from becoming infected with the more common and dangerous strains of HPV (type 6/11/16 and 18), and therefore cuts the risk of developing cervical or anal cancer significantly.
It is important to note that the HPV is a preventative vaccine not a therapeutic vaccine.
The HPV Vaccination involves a series of 3 injections over 6 months. The HPV vaccine is available “off licence” to any of our patients who are at risk. This means we can also give the vaccine to any men who feel they might be at risk from HPV infection. This is particularly important if you have a compromised immune system for whatever reason.
Off licence means that although the particular medication has not been studied in a certain population (age) group, it can be given following informed consent if indicated and if likely benefit exceeds the risks.
Most STI’s can be easily treated and if you are found to be positive for Chlamydia/ gonorrhoea/ mycoplasma/ Ureaplasma/ Trichomonas or Bacterial Vaginosis we can issue you with the correct antibiotics. (We strictly adhere to the British association for Sexual Health and HIV guidelines for treatment).
Most antibiotics needed are available onsite. We can also dispense medication for herpes and treat genital warts with liquid nitrogen.
For more complicated conditions such as HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, we can either refer you to the Genito Urinary Medicine (GUM) department at your local hospital or we can refer you to a private specialist.
We can offer advice on all types of contraception, including dispensing some of the most common types, issuing of prescriptions as well as onsite contraceptive injections and we can issue the morning after pill. Check our fees page for up to date price information on contraception services at samedaydoctor.

We can offer discreet help & advice for this delicate matter. If you are concerned that there might be a physical problem we can discuss this with you and carry out a physical examination and any relevant blood tests. Most instances of ED is caused by psychological stress (performance anxiety) but in some cases there can be serious underlying causes such as diabetes, high cholesterol, low testosterone or as a side effect of some medications. We there always recommend seeing a doctor first to rule out a physical cause for the issue.
If you have already been tested and or just need medication we can offer an initial consult and exam as well as provide you with the most common treatments for erectile dysfunction. If you prefer not to go to the pharmacy to collect the medication we can arrange for you to pick up the medication from our site.
