What People Say
‘I have been attending SHQ for 21 years and recommend the service to everyone I know. The clinic is friendly and professional, and has always made me feel 100% comfortable’
‘I’ve been coming to SHQ for quite a few years now and my experiences have been 100% positive. SHQ is my sole sexual health provider. They have knowledgeable and experienced staff in sexual health. I have been able to have continuous follow up by the same team of doctors throughout my treatment’
‘I’d like to thank you for the quality of service provided – I first started coming here for my appointments six years ago as it was much easier to deal with you in regards to contraception. I’ve also have been having my Pap smears here since… well ever! Your work is tremendous, with lots and lots of information when you need it.’
I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of the service. How helpful the staff were, how I was listened to and the way things were explained to me. Even though it is uncomfortable coming to these things, every time I come here, I love it. The people here are always so lovely.
I was very warmly greeted and listened to very carefully. The doctor gave me a very good explanation and I felt extremely confident in her ability. I was given every opportunity to express any concerns or fears I had, and was shown total respect at all times. I would highly recommend this service to my friends. The doctor was very thorough and helpful.
