ABSTRACT
The potential barriers to attendance at specialist sexually transmitted infection services have long been recognised. The British Royal Commission report in 1916 advised that to be effective, services needed to be "skilled, free and provided at the earliest possible moment." In addition, clinicians needed to be aware of "the fear of disgrace and the consequent desire for concealment" that could hamper treatment delivery. In many respects the British genitourinary medicine services have risen to these challenges. The majority of clinics provide timely, effective care from easy to access and well located clinics.
