It will be open from Monday to Saturday and will include a gay men’s clinic, a young person’s clinic and IUD/IUS/implant fitting. It will be run by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH), commissioned by Wandsworth, Richmond and Merton Councils.
Falcon Road will be the hub of Sexual Health South West London’s services for the three boroughs – with satellite clinics in Mitcham, Twickenham and Wimbledon.
Services will still be provided at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton, until 31 October and at Balham Health Centre until 17 November before transferring to Clapham Junction.
Wandsworth Council’s health spokesman Cllr Paul Ellis said: “This new clinic will ensure high-quality sexual health services brought together in a central, accessible place and are available for everyone.
“Clients coming to this modern, purpose-built centre can be sure that they will be treated with professionalism, respect and the utmost confidentiality.”
Dr Joanne Medhurst, CLCH Medical Director, said: “It’s about a year since we began working in partnership with Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth councils – as well as the doctors, nurses and support staff who provide the healthcare. All are committed to delivering a highly professional service providing the best care for local people.
