Diagnosis, Treatment & Prescription Under One Roof
Once a diagnosis has been reached either at your first visit or follow-up appointment, your consultant will advise on the best course of management. Commonly, this involves prescribing a medication on a private prescription that can be obtained from our pharmacy – or any pharmacy of your choice.
HIV and STI Treatment
Amongst the current advances in the treatment of HIV and related STI’s, we can advise on the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) that can minimise the chances of contracting HIV.

HIV post exposure prophylaxis after sexual exposure (PEPSE).
STI post exposure prophylaxis.
The practice has extensive experience in the management of HIV infection and AIDS. We have particular interest and expertise in chronic prostatitis*, the chronic pelvic pain syndrome* in men.
* The chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) and chronic prostatitis (CP) in men are often terms used interchangeably to describe a syndrome which causes pain in the lower pelvic region of men. The cause is not known although symptoms are thought to come from the prostate grand and/or increased muscle tone in and around the pelvic floor. Only occasionally is an underlying cause found and diagnosis is usually one of exclusion. Treatment is difficult and best results are often achieved by excluding underlying pathology where necessary and using a combination of 1) medicinal therapy including antibiotics, alpha blockers and painkillers and 2) psychological therapy in order to reduce pelvic tone, improve strategies for coping with pain and help the patient address underlying anxieties.
