Assisting you to inform your sexual partners if you have been diagnosed with an STI
Untreated sexually transmitted infections can cause serious health problems if untreated. Most of people infected with STI are unaware of their infection.
If you are diagnosed with an infection, treating your partner(s) will protect you from catching infection again. Treating your ex-partners may not only prevent them from having serious health problems but also stop the infection being passed on to others. Treatment of STI and prevention of their spread is also our responsibility. It is for this reason we have trained staff to perform partner notification.
Informing partners of their risk of a STI is a sensitive issue. Our health advisors can help you with this task. They can contact your partner(s) and inform them that they may be at risk of the STI you have been diagnosed with without naming you. You need to leave your partner(s) name, age, and contact details (preferably mobile number) with the health advisors.
Some patients may choose to inform their partners themselves. In that case, our health advisors will contact them after a few weeks to confirm the partner(s) have been informed. This is to ensure we have fulfilled our duty.
We believe letting our health advisors to contact your partner(s) is the most convenient way for you; we do not need to contact you again. Remember we shall never disclose your identity to your partners without your permission.
