We are experiencing a high demand for our services and we are working hard to make sure that you are seen as quickly as possible.

Our colleagues on the phone lines will need to ask questions to help ensure that our urgent appointments are available for those who are most unwell.

Patients with non-urgent issues may wait a little longer for an appointment but most will still be seen within 14 days.

Your GP may be able to help with your contraception needs.  

Please be patient with our colleagues and thank you for your understanding.


We are open if you require Sexual health/Contraception care, please continue to call our central booking line on 01904 721111 and press option 1.

Central booking line is open from - Monday – Thursday 8:15am – 5pm & Friday 8:15am – 4pm. Saturday 9am-12pm.

You will be assessed by our team and one of our nurses may call you to discuss the best way to get you the care you require.

If you are aged 17 and under, you can text us on 07973 775692 to make an appointment Monday-Thursday 8.15am-5pm and Friday 8.15am-4pm.

 If you are unable to speak on the phone for any other reason (i.e. hearing impairment or at risk within your home) you can email us on www.yorsexualhealth.org.uk/york/contact-us/

Celebrating York PRIDE 2017

We are hoping for sunshine and rainbows as we celebrate York PRIDE 2017 on Saturday 10th June. The YorSexualHealth team and partners Yorkshire MESMAC will be on the Knavesmire between 1pm and 7pm, offering fast, free and confidential HIV and STI testing as well as free condoms and lube. Come along, meet the team and find out all you want to know about sexual health, or just get a free polaroid photo or sperm keyring to take away!

The York PRIDE event provides a platform for a celebration of the diversity of our LGBT community in a context of entertainment, inclusivity and fun. It is a free, family friendly event starting at 11.45 with the parade leaving from the Minster and then there will be entertainment on the Knavesmire until 7pm.
