Clinics

What happens at our clinics?

If the focus of your visit is contraception the most appropriate clinics to attend are East Laith Gate House, Mexborough Health Centre, Askern Children’s Centre and Moorends (Hedgerow) Children’s centre.

GuMED are now also located at East Laith Gate and all clients should go to floor 1 reception to be pointed in the right direction.

We’re confidential

Everything you discuss with us is strictly confidential. Your records are kept within the service and your information wouldn’t normally be shared with any other hospital, department or GP without your knowledge. We won’t give your results to anyone else without your permission.

On the rare occasion that we do need to give information to a third party, we will always aim to tell you. The only reason we would do this is if we felt you or someone else were at risk of serious harm.

Pregnancy testing is only offered alongside contraception consultations, our service doesn’t offer pregnancy testing to confirm a pregnancy nor is any literature offered for a pregnancy test outcome

How long will you be in the clinic?

ELGH – Our ‘Sit and wait’ sessions can get busy, we offer a ‘Triage’ service and notify patients of expected wait times, if you’ve come for an appointment, we aim to see you within half an hour of your given time.

Please note: Seeing the doctor/nurse, having tests taken and getting your results and treatment can take up to 1 hour.

GuMed @ East Laith Gate – When you drop into the walk-in clinic, it may already be full to capacity, which unfortunately means we may not be able to see you that day.  You will be offered an appointment to attend another day.

Please telephone the service to enquire if there are available slots.
Any urgent cases will be assessed daily through a nurse triage system, however, you may experience a waiting time of up to 2 hours.
