Advice & Treatment

When it comes to your sexual health there's a lot you need to know. From how to avoid Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) such as Chlamydia, getting to grips with contraception, to being clear about your sexuality, it can all seem a bit daunting.

We have clinics in many locations throughout the region. All patients from any area are invited to attend the service and people of all ages are welcome, including under 16 year olds.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality means not telling anyone else about anything you have said to us or about the information we have about you. Occasionally there may be exceptional circumstances when we are required by law to share your information - for example if we get information that suggests that you or another are at serious risk of harm, we may have to discuss this with other services in order to protect you.

All our services, tests, advice and treatment are entirely free and confidential.

If you have any questions at all email us via ecn-tr.gosh@nhs.net 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to national supply issues our clinics are currently unable to provide any HPV vaccinations. 
We are expecting to be resupplied with the vaccine in the coming weeks and will provide further updates via this website and our social media channels once this is the case. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Our partners

Many local businesses and organisations are helping to raise awareness of our services to their customers and clients.

This is often by displaying promotional materials around their premises and sharing vital sexual health and contraception information through their newsletters and social media channels.

Gender identification within our booking system 

We recognise that many of our patients do not identify as male or female and that subsequently our appointment booking system does not cater to the needs of all our patients. We are currently working to resolve this and improve our service. In the meantime we ask that you please bear with us while our systems are upgraded.
