Specialist sources of support
If you're concerned as you believe you may have and STI, or would simply like to have a check-up, then you can access either F-risky, local GUM clinic at Bournemouth Hospital, Alma Medical Centre (Winton), or your own GP. If you believe you may be pregnant we advise you see your GP to confirm the pregnancy and discuss you needs.
