To access services at Pitstop+, there is no need to make an appointment – just call in any Thursday evening where our team of staff and volunteers will be there to help you.
Pitstop+ offers blood tests for blood borne infections including HIV, syphilis and hepatitis B, along with routine screening for chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
The service will also offers confidential one-to-one support, free condoms, lube and sexual health information by request.
* Men who are coming to access STI testing at Pitstop+ are advised not to pass urine for 1 hour prior to attending the service.

The government has confirmed that it will introduce a nationwide HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination programme for men who have sex with men (aged 45 or younger). Following a successful pilot, NHS England and Public Health England will work to start the programme from April 2018 to protect men who have sex with men from some cancers caused by HPV, as well as genital warts.
Given the phased approach to the rollout, Public Health England are asking patients not to contact their clinics to request the vaccine but rather, when the vaccine becomes available, patients will be offered it as part of their routine sexual health check-up. We will post further information about this vaccination programme as it becomes available.
