#CSETHESIGNS

The Scottish Government is running a campaign to raise awareness and understanding of child sexual exploitation (CSE).

  • CSE is a form of child sexual abuse and is happening to girls and boys in Scotland today
  • It takes many forms and can happen online as well as offline
  • It can take place on a one to one basis between a victim and an offender as well as in organised groups
  • It can happen to young people from secure, loving homes as well as more vulnerable young people
    such as those in care
  • We all have a role to play in helping to keep young people in Scotland safe
  • For advice and support visit csethesigns.scot

 Did you know we have an automated results service? 

This service provides 24/7 access to STI test results for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C by means of a confidential and secure automated phone system.

You will be handed an information card on this new service when attending for STI testing.  This will contain your unique patient ID.  It's important that you keep this number safe as you will not be able to access your results without it.

Lost/Forgotten patient IDs.  For reasons of patient confidentiality and anonymity we are unable to provide these over the phone.  Patients will be required to attend the clinic where they were tested in person before being issued with your unique Patient Identification Number.

To use this service call:  01382 425542

  • You can phone the above number to get your test results (the same number is used for all clinics)
  • Please listen to the entire message
  • Your date of birth should be entered in 8 digit format DD/MM/YYYY
  • The results service may direct you to a Health Care Professional to discuss your results further
  • PLEASE NOTE: not all test results are available from the results line.  The tests that you have done are marked on the card you were given when tested.
  • Most results will be available 2 weeks following the test date.
  • Please ensure that we have your correct contact details to enable us to contact you.
