This Gallery

This gallery is intended to assist in supporting collaborative diagnoses between patients and clinicians. During the COVID pandemic clinicians may ask patients to select links below to review example images of genital problems. This can be to help patients self-assess their own symptoms during telephone triage, or it may be to provide further information on a condition already diagnosed.

THIS PAGE IS NOT DESIGNED FOR PATIENTS TO SELF-DIAGNOSE FROM.

Assessing genital symptoms should always occur with support from a sexual health clinician.

Please be aware that these images are of genitals. We would recommend you review them in a private space
