King’s College Hospital Sexual Health Clinic @ Beckenham Beacon

Sexual health

We provide free, confidential sexual health and HIV services at Beckenham Beacon. We are open to everyone regardless of age or sexuality, and we offer a range of services, including:

  • screening for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HIV
  • treatment and contact tracing
  • HIV treatment and care
  • emergency contraception
  • condom distribution
  • advice on safer sex and avoiding STIs

 

Sexual health walk-in clinic

There’s no need to make an appointment or be referred – simply come in to the clinic for advice and support.

We operate a walk-in and wait ticket system, with a limited number of tickets per hour. Once these tickets have all been given out, we will ask you to come to the next convenient clinic.

Patients can self-refer into the walk-in clinics.
