Sexual Health Services 4 Herefordshire
There is a dedicated young person’s Sexual Health clinic (a non-prejudiced service) which takes place every Wednesday afternoon 1-4pm at 15 St Owens Street (opposite the Town Hall). Or young people can drop in anytime Monday – Friday 9.30am – 12 to see a clinician.
All staff within the sexual health service are trained and have a responsibility for safeguarding and are guided and supported by an experienced Safeguarding Nurse. Any young person experiencing high anxiety about accessing routine sexual health clinics can telephone the service and ask to speak to a clinician or email the service in confidence through the “contact us” option on the www.sexualhealthservices4herefordshire.co.uk website.
