Genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics

If you are worried about having a sexually transmitted infection, you can get tested at a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic. There are walk-in and appointment-only clinics available in hospitals and health centres. Men who have sex with men can get the HPV vaccine if they attend a GUM clinic.
