Integrated Sexual Health Services remains available during lockdown. We continue to provide urgent and some non-urgent care to service users, however, there are a number of temporary changes in response to the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak.
There currently isn’t the option to ‘walk-in’ and all patients wishing to access appointments are triaged via the Information and Booking line: 0800 328 3383, Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm.
Patients are assessed over the phone and priority patients are given a time for either a face to face or a telephone consultation appointment.
Booked appointments can be made for the following clinics only: Chesterfield; Derby; Buxton; Swadlincote and Long Eaton. Other peripheral clinics are currently closed.
The service now has a number of self-care options that patients can access online. These free, confidential and discreet items include:
•Condoms by post – C-Card for 13-24 year olds and over 24 years+.
•Oral contraception – virtual assessment and prescriptions posted out.
•Postal emergency contraception (over 16s only). Under 16s can still contact us to request emergency contraception via our information and booking line.
•STI & HIV testing – including treatment for chlamydia by post.
•Virtual sexual health promotion advice – via self-referral online to speak to a sexual health promotion practitioner regarding things like risky sexual behaviours, STIs concerns and general sexual health & wellbeing advice.
•Photo diagnosis for lumps, bumps and warts – for people aged 18 years and over. This can be booked via the information and booking line number.
