On Wednesday 1 July 2015 Leeds Sexual Health was launched. This is a new 'integrated' Sexual Health Service designed to offer people contraception, HIV testing and Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) testing and treatment.
In October 2015, a new city centre clinic will open within the Merrion Centre but until this time the service will be run from the current bases at the Centre for Sexual Health / Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) at the Sunnybank Wing of the Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) and Citywise on Eastgate.
There will be four clinics across the city run from the Reginald Centre, Armley Moor Health Centre, Burmantofts Health Centre and Beeston Village Medical Centre. During the summer, outreach work will begin in the East Leeds area. There will also be a clinic at Burmantofts Health Centre each Saturday once Citywise closes in October.
If you have any questions, or are unsure of where to access services while the changes are taking place, please call the helpline on 0113 392 6725. Appointments can be made by calling 0113 392 6724.
More information about clinic opening times can be found here. Please note, the last walk in admission will be 30 minutes before the clinic closure time to allow enough time for patient consultations to be completed.
A new and improved version of the Leeds Sexual Health website is currently being created so watch this space!
