We have clinics across the whole of North Yorkshire and the City of York which offer a range of “integrated” sexual health and contraception services. This means you can usually get all of your sexual health care provided in one place at one time. This includes tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, a range of contraception options, free condoms and advice.
We will soon be offering “virtual clinics” that provide telephone, online and postal services so that you don’t have to attend a clinic. Routine STI/HIV testing (for people without any symptoms), treatments, some types of contraception and free condoms will be available through this service. More info coming soon...
Your GP can also offer you a range of free and confidential sexual health care.
Our Community Outreach Team can offer free and confidential rapid HIV tests outside of clinic locations, as well as free condoms, counselling and support. Contact Yorkshire MESMAC, one of the oldest and largest sexual health organisations in the country, for more information.
If you, or someone you care for has been diagnosed with HIV then contact our Positive Support team to find out how we could help you. North Yorkshire AIDS Action (NYAA) is an established charity that provides practical and emotional support to people living with or affected by HIV who are living in North Yorkshire and York.
