The Claude Nicol Centre (Sexual Health) & Lawson Unit (HIV)
Royal Sussex County Hospital,
Brighton BN2 5BE
The Claude Nicol Centre is a centre of excellence for sexual health
• We will be leaders in sexual health & HIV aiming to educate and collaborate with other local providers, train the next generation of health professionals and continue to deliver cutting edge national and international research.
• We will show respect and dignity to our service users, keep them at the centre of everything we do and ensure that we enable them to optimise their future health.
• We will consistently deliver an excellent, non-judgmental, and inclusive service. We will be open about our mistakes and learn from them to constantly improve patient experience and care.
• We will value our motivated and enthusiastic colleagues and aim to make our service the BEST place to work!
The Centre is staffed by our friendly team of specialist doctors, nurses and health advisers.
Open to everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender or sexuality we offer every possible service.
You don’t need a GP referral, and best of all, it’s all completely free – even prescriptions!
We guarantee you an appointment within 2 working days, as well as a walk-in service and late clinics.
You will be given the choice of male or female staff, and because we have the latest technology and testing methods we can often diagnose and treat the same day.
Naturally, all of our services are confidential and your privacy will be respected at all times. You can even have your test results sent by text message direct to your mobile phone
