At Essex Private Doctors we offer a fast and discreet sexual health screening service.  A consultation with one of our highly experienced GPs allows you to discuss your sexual health concerns in complete confidence.

We will not correspond with your NHS GP, or any other health professional unless you specifically request us to do so.

You will receive a thorough consultation, with ample time to properly discuss your sexual health concerns. During your consultation, your doctor will also advise which tests are most appropriate for you.

We offer a wide range of testing for sexually transmitted infections, all carried out from our fully equipped Shenfield GP surgery.   Samples and swabs are sent immediately to our central London laboratory and results are available rapidly.

As many sexually transmitted infections do not show any symptoms, the immediacy of our service is designed to give you complete peace of mind.

Full sexual health screen, including
-blood tests for HIV, Hepatitis B and C,
-urine analysis for infections including herpes, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, bacterial vaginosis

Please see our fees section for details on costs of sexual health screening.


You can book an appointment at our Shenfield practice, giving you fast access to a doctor when you need it.

Your consultation will be with one of our fully qualified, and highly experienced doctors, and take place within a comfortable, well-equipped surgery.  You will receive a thorough consultation, with ample time to properly discuss your health concerns or illness.

Any additional investigations, such as ECGs and blood tests will be performed by your doctor during the appointment. These would incur additional charges, which would always be discussed with you before proceeding. In addition, the appointment will also include the writing of a prescription or recommendation of further tests or treatment.
