Sexual Health Sheffield

Sexual Health Sheffield is an NHS run service which offers a range of free and confidential sexual health services to people of all genders in Sheffield. They work to promote safer sex and positive sexual health and well-being choices, alongside preventing the spread of HIV and sexually transmitted infections in the city. These services work to a holistic model of sexual health acknowledging the political, social, and cultural factors alongside health inequalities that affect and determine people’s sexual health as well as the role played by individual experience, emotions, sexuality and spirituality. Their approach affirms people’s right to sex which is consensual, mutual, equal, pleasurable and satisfying.

They usually run a sexual health clinic in Sheffield at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. In response to Covid-19, they only offer essential face-to-face appointments.
