Due to high demand on the service, if following telephone triage your symptoms are deemed non-urgent/routine, you may be asked to call back the following day to speak with a clinician.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to review our processes and make some changes in respect of patients who do not reside in the Liverpool area.
You may be asked to contact your local host service or GP where possible for smears, contraception methods requiring you to travel to a clinic appointment and STI testing. If you do contact our Triage service we will endeavour to be of service, but please note we may not be able to assist you at this time.
