AXIS Clinic

How our service can help you

The AXIS Clinic is a chemsex support service for gay and bisexual men, men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people.

Our service has been created to provide support forthe LGBTQ+ community who are experiencing issues with chemsex, and support is offered through a range of interventions aimed at supporting clients to achieve more positive outcomes in relation to HIV prevention and management, sexual health, mental health and substance (mis) use.

The AXIS clinic is a partnership between Antidote at London Friend and CASCAID, our HIV mental health service here at the Trust and is hosted by King’s College Hospital at the Caldecot Centre.

Services offered at the clinic include:

  • A dedicated sexual health clinic for men who have sex with men and transgender women
  • Advice, support and access to PrEP and PEP
  • Screening for sexually transmitted infections, HIV, Hepatitis B and C (Self screening or by appointment)
  • Vaccination for hepatitis A and B
  • Links into to HIV and hepatitis services at King's College Hospital
  • Chemsex harm reduction advice, information, interventions and, where necessary, referral into support services
  • Advice, interventions and triage, where necessary, for HIV+ clients whose mental health may have been compromised as a result of chem use
  • Advice and information for patients whose risk behaviour could lead them to become HIV positive.
  • Psychiatric assessments and referral on as required
  • Access to sexual health peer mentoring

The Axis Clinic is predominantly a drop-in service for clients who would like advice, information and, support around chemsex.  Axis will also run alongside the existing PrEP clinic and clients booking sexual health and PrEP appointments will also have the option to book in for chemsex advice and support.

The Axis Clinic runs on Wednesday evenings from 4pm to 7pm.
