Useful contacts

Condoms, pregnancy tests and other supplies (dental dams, lube) can be obtained from the JCR Welfare Officers, or the CUSU Welfare Officer.

Genitourinary Medicine Clinics (GUM Clinics)
These offer sexual health check–ups and advice, treatment for HIV, Hepatitis B immunisation and so on. The key point about a GUM clinic is that the notes are kept separate and private from any other files on you. You can even use a false name. Neither your GP nor anyone else will find out that you have been seen. And since the staff there deal exclusively with sexual health related illnesses, they’ve seen it all before!
