New base for Trafford sexual health services
6:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in News
TRAFFORD sexual health services are on the move.
The service, providing advice on contraception, reproductive health and treatment of sexually transmitted infections for people of all ages, is moving to a new location from September 2.
The move coincides with the launch of the Trafford Integrated Sexual Health Service by Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust.
The service will offer a ‘one stop shop’ for contraception and genito-urinary medicine (GUM) at 74 Princess Road which will be known as Urmston Clinic. It will offer a service for men and women of all ages including young people.
Bridgewater won a three year contract to deliver sexual health services in Trafford following a tendering exercise earlier this year by Trafford Primary Care Trust and Trafford Council.
Chief Executive of Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust, Dr Kate Fallon said: “Our integrated service will build on the existing sexual health services in Trafford and benefit from our experience of delivering these services in other towns.
“We will be offering services from a single location which has been specially adapted so that people will be able to access different sexual health services in just one visit to the clinic.”
Bridgewater is also offering accessible young person only clinics across Trafford, in partnership with Trafford Youth Service, with the hub being located at Sale Talk Shop.
From September 2 the Trafford Integrated Sexual Health Service will be located at Urmston Clinic, 74 Princess Road, Trafford, M41 5SQ.
The service will be open from 8.30am to 5pm, Monday Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and from 8.30am to 9pm on Thursday. It will replace existing sexual health services at Trafford General Hospital.
To contact the service email TISH@bridgewater.nhs.uk.
The sexual health services offered at Altrincham General Hospital, Chapel Road, Partington Health Centre, Seymour Grove Health Centre, Timperley Health Centre, Lostock Medical Centre, Trafford FE College and Talkshop in Sale Waterside are unaffected by these changes.
