This clinic runs a mix of drop in sessions and booked appointments. Drop in sessions are from 8:10am to 12:30pm Monday, Tuesday and Friday. If you are coming to the drop in clinic you will need to be registered in clinic 30 minutes before the close of the session so that we have enough time to complete your consultation.
The clinic can be very busy at times but our aim is to see you within one hour of your arrival.
Please be aware that although we offer a drop in service, slots are limited so if the clinic is oversubscribed (too many patients waiting to be seen), then you may be asked to come back at another time or day.
There may also be times when the drop in clinics may need to close earlier than the advertised times due to high number of patients attending before the end of the clinic session. We have to make the decision to close so that all those already waiting can be offered appropriate care safely. However our reception desk will remain open until the advertised closing time to deal with queries.
Appointment sessions run at different times depending on the day of the week. Please check our Clinics' Timetable page for more detail information.
Appointments can only be booked 48 hours in advance If you would like to book an appointment please call 0113 392 0333. Sometimes our appointment lists can take a little longer than planned, but if you have a booked appointment our aim is to see you within 30 minutes of your arrival.
The service will now be a dedicated service for under 19s only and will be open from 3:30 to 5:30pm Monday to Thursdays. This is a drop in service, so no appointment is necessary.
If you already have a registered C-Card, you can pick up condoms at any time the clinic is open. New C-Card registration is available during the Young People's clinic drop-ins or during drop in clinics .
Tuesday night @ Merrion centre focuses on sexual health for men.
The clinic is open from 5:15 to 8pm. The last appointment will be 30 minutes before the clinic closure time to allow sufficient time for patient consultations to be completed.
This clinic will focus on men’s sexual health, including men using drugs for sex, gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men and trans people, plus those at higher HIV risk.
