The Garden Clinic provides a free, confidential, non judgemental, integrated Sexual Health Service in Slough, Bracknell and Maidenhead.
Testing and treatment of sexual infections (STIs), emergency contraception, HIV testing and treatment and emergency treatment following HIV risk (PEP) are all available. For information about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) or Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), please click here.
From April 2022 the NHS has started providing a new injectable treatment for people living with HIV. If you are interested in this treatment, or would like to know more please ask us at your next appointment in clinic when we can assess your suitability and advise on the treatment.
Sex is a normal part of most people's lives. Whatever your sexuality or preference we are not here to judge but to help inform your choices and to support you to remain healthy. The service is completely free.
Here to help not to judge.
11 am - 6 pm Booked appointments only

Anyone who wants help and advice for matters related to Sexual Health. We also run clinics for young people aged 18 and under.
If this is your first visit to the Garden Clinic you will need to register when you arrive, giving your contact details, post code and date of birth etc. Reception staff are always happy to help if you have problems filling in forms.
Some people are worried about leaving their details even though we are extremely protective of your confidentiality. You will understand that for future visits and to link you to your tests we will need a constant identifier. For this reason we do always need a date of birth and your post code.
If your first language is not English and you need help during your visit to communicate we can arrange interpreters. You will need to ask a friend to call the clinic to arrange this. Alternatively you may have a friend who speaks English who is happy to come to the clinic with you and interpret for you.
Following registration you will be given a clinic number by the clinician. This clinic number is really important in all your communications with the clinic, it links you to your record. It is your unique number and you will need it to access any test results, it is used instead of your name to ensure your privacy and confidentiality.
You will be called by a clinician from the waiting room by your first name. Please note that you will not necessarily be called in numerical order as there will often be different clinics running at the same time and some patients may have appointments for these clinics.
Please allow yourself up to 2 hours for your appointment, we will always try and meet your needs as quickly as is possible. If you need to leave the waiting room please tell the receptionists.
Our service is open access meaning you do not need a referral from your GP but if your GP would like to refer you that is OK. Other specialists may also want to refer you to our clinic and that again is no problem.
