How to access your new sexual health service in Thurrock

Welcome! From April 2024 Brook is the new sexual health service provider in Thurrock. We’re got lots to share with you, including our online platform, My Brook, where you can order STI tests, view your results and request contraception online.

For the first two weeks of April, while we’re busy getting everything set up, we will only be able to offer you an appointment if it’s an emergency but you can access online services via My Brook.

Please note: We do not offer walk-ins. Please do not turn up to clinic unless we have confirmed a face-to-face appointment with you.
