Important information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In order to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are offering telephone appointments and postal tests/treatments whenever possible. If you need to be seen in a clinic this can be arranged after you have spoken with a nurse on the phone.

During lockdown 2 we recommend people who live and work outside of North Yorkshire and York access sexual health services local to them to reduce travel  between regions

We will reply to you within 1 - 2 working days. Please note that this texting service is not for routine enquiries. If you feel your safety is at risk please contact the Police.
