At Marie Stopes Centre, we understand how important confidentiality and privacy can be for our clients, who may not want their partner, family or other to know that they have a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
Rest assured that you can access STI testing services without anyone knowing including your family, friends and doctor.
Anything you tell our staff will be kept 100% confidential. Any treatment you may receive will not be added to your medical records.
Although some people do not wish to discuss STIs with their partner, if you have an STI your partner almost certainly will too. They must also get tested to make sure, and seek treatment if necessary. Your partner can also be tested at Marie Stopes Centre.
Many people are worried or embarrassed about talking to their partner about a sexually transmitted infection, but as some infections are very common either of you could have been infected before you met. If your partner does not get tested and seek treatment, you may become infected again.
Once a person contacts Marie Stopes centre their data is stored securely. As a provider of National Heath services, Marie Stopes Centre has to meet stringent data protection rules.
When you call our Meri Saathi Free Helpline on 16600119756 (ntc) or 9801119756 (ncell), our counselors also maintain 100% privacy and refer you to Marie Stopes Centre nearby you.
