About the Guide Clinic

St. James's Hospital is a university teaching hospital attached to Trinity College School of Medicine, Nursing and Social Science. The GUIDE service is very active in teaching future doctors, nurses and social workers. Medical and nursing students rotate through our department under supervision to gain a wide experience in clinical care to ensure that they are well trained health care providers of the future.

The department also plays an active role in the postgraduate education of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and social workers.

--We are currently CLOSED for STI Walk-ins. Please note that if your GP has referred you to the GUIDe clinic you will be contacted with an appointment.  We kindly ask that you do not attend without an appointment. We are seeing a limited number of STI emergencies that have been given an advance appointment after referral. Patients who have HIV appointments for collection of their medication should attend at their appointment time. The number of patients that are allowed into the department is limited so we will be strictly observing appointment times. GUIDE PrEP patients with upcoming clinic appointments will be contacted by phone and offered a phone consultation. Patients will then be given a new “rapid” appointment slot, to attend for bloods/STI screen/vaccine and to collect prescription. Face to face consults are arranged as required.
