NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde's Sexual Health Website

Sandyford Central is based at 2/6 Sandyford Place, Sauchiehall St, Glasgow, G3 7NB. Tel: 0141 211 8130.  Our most popular service is the Walk-In clinics as you don't need to have an appointment.

However this clinic is busy and you may have a long wait for the walk-in service. If you feel your condition is not urgent, appointments are available via the Sandyford switchboard on the above number. Routine contraception and smear testing are available via your GP or practice nurse.

Ever wondered how many units of alcohol you drink or how many calories are in your favourite tipple? Are you concerned it may be an issue? Use our Alcolator to calculate how many units you drink, then use the Alco-check to see whether its a safe amount or not. If you're worried about your score, free confidential Alcohol Brief Interventions are available at Sandyford Central.

Waverley Care has launched a research project unlike any ever undertaken in Scotland. The SAMM Project, a confidential research study aimed at improving services for African men who have sex with men (MSM) is being run in partnership with researchers at Glasgow Caledonian University. The research team seeks to interview Scotland based African MSM aged 16 and older. Involvement is strictly confidential and as a thank you, they are offering a £20 high street voucher. For more information visit the website, call/text Greg Baker from the charity on 07429 275 660 or email SAMMproject@waverleycare.org

Every day in the UK 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 3 women will lose their lives to the disease. Cervical cancer is largely preventable thanks to cervical screening and the HPV vaccination programme. However uptake of cervical screening is now going down year on year. Early detection is also key in increasing survival rates and so educating everyone on the disease, its symptoms and ways to prevent it is key. Cervical Cancer Prevention Week provides us with an opportunity to do just that. Check out our info pages (complete with downloadable leaflets) on Cervical Screening to help you get informed. Everyone's invited, so contact your local GP to book your smear test!
