I've been visiting the Praed Street Project for years and the ladies are so lovely not to mention all the great advice and support I get from them. 

I actually look forward to going there now as it's a nice place to offload too (and boy don't we need it at times!).

HC, if anything you'll get asked MORE questions at Praed St, but they're lovely, totally non-judgemental, and have heard it all before. Plus after your first visit the process speeds up. Just remember the questions they're asking are for our own good.

I also like the anonymous coding system: at my old clinic, they would call out your full name for the whole waiting room to hear!

Does anyone have any experience with them? Or know how easy it is to make an appointment? I used to go to Sunnybank in Leeds which was such a palava to get a hold of as you had to ring up early in the morning and no sooner than 48hr in advance of when you wanted an appointment, then once you got there you had to allow a couple of hours for your appointment because of how long it took to be seen.

I've merged your post in with Praed Street's thread, since other posters have answered some of your question. A lot of people use the project and it is busy, but it's very well regarded with lovely staff.

I'm sure somebody will pop along with some detailed info, but do contact them directly too :).

There are two clinics in Praed Street.  There's the one where the general public go and there's another department specifically for sex workers which is where I go as they have all my history on file (eg. all vaccinations, previous check ups and results etc). 

You can phone up and make an appointment in advance and your waiting time at that appointment is rarely more then 15 minutes or there's one specific day you can phone up and make a same day appointment but that's first come first served and you need to phone asap around 10 am.   

For any emergencies you may be able to be seen the same day if they have appointments available but if not then you are advised usually to go to the general public one where of course there will be a waiting time as it's first come first served and obviously dependent on how early you arrive and how many people are waiting already.

I've been visiting them for years and can only praise them.  There is a clinic and also what they call a drop in where you can go for a chat/advise or just to offload and the staff are absolutely lovely and of course non judgmental in any way.
