Sexual health

Looking after your sexual health is an important part of staying healthy. Getting treatment early can help prevent problems later, so get checked out if you think you are at risk.

Contact the Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) clinic at Sandwell General Hospital for information and testing for HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Look in our Information Point directory of care and community organisations for details of other organisations that can give you help and advice.

The Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is the leading HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) charity in the UK.

THT Midlands (direct helpline 0845 1221 200) can help if you are living with HIV, know someone who is, or think you might be at risk of HIV. They aim to help you get on with your life by providing direct services, face to face support and information based on your needs.
