Introducing the Blanche Heriot Unit

The Blanche Heriot Unit provides free sexual health advice and genito-urinary medicine. We are based in the Abbey Wing at St. Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey.

We are open!

You may have read articles in the local press and online about closures to Sexual Health units in the Surrey area. Whilst this is the case - we would like to confirm that we are still open.

Please check our clinic times for more information about appointments and "walk-in and wait" services.

HIV Testing initiative

Blanche Heriot is part of a HIV Testing initiative which has been rolled out in A&E at St Peter's Hospital.

The aim of this new arrangement is to normalise testing for HIV in adults and make it an opt out approach so that we capture all those who come through A&E and offer them an HIV test wherever possible and make it as straight forward as possible too.
