Transgender and non-binary sexual health service for Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark residents
A new sexual health and general wellbeing clinic for transgender and non-binary people is now available at King's College Hospital. The clinic at the Caldecot
Centre in Camberwell, is funded through a joint partnership between Lewisham, Southwark and Lambeth councils.
All three signed up to a shared sexual health strategy, and worked closely with King's College Hospital and cliniQ to deliver a new walk-in clinic – the first of its kind in south London.

The clinic is for sexual health plus general health and wellbeing, and is designed to specifically support the needs of transgender and non-binary people. Opening from 4-7pm every Tuesday, services include STI testing and treatment, contraception, counselling, acupuncture, cervical screening, hormone testing, hormone injection and advice, sexual assault support, hate crime support, housing advice, and the PrEP Impact Trial.
Dr Catherine Mbema, Interim Director of Public Health at Lewisham Council said 'We are so proud to be part of this great initiative. In recognising that trans and non-binary people have intersectional needs, we are able to deliver the services they need.'
This follows Lewisham's launch of Pride in Practice, supporting all primary care services to enable them to offer inclusive healthcare to their LGBTQ+ patients, and ensure that they feel safe, respected and supported.
