At the end of 2015 Trade has opened full sexual health screening at their offices in partnership with Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Sexual Health Services.
The aim of this service is to allow lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people to access all the screening expected from a local NHS sexual health clinic in an informal setting in Leicester City Centre.
The screening involves the choice of two types of tests, depending on your history, you may be advised to complete both;
Urine sample and/or swab tests from the throat/rectum/cervix (whichever is applicable) to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
Blood testing for syphilis, HIV and Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C (where advised).
(You can find more information about above listed sexually transmitted infections and sexual health here)
The clinic is in a private room on site to ensure confidentiality. All information is kept strictly confidential and clients will be notified about the results within 10 - 14 days through text (other options also available). You will only be contacted by phone if you have any positive results.
The weekly clinics are targeted to all members of LGB&T communities and we particularly welcome lesbian and trans communities who may appreciate professional, informal and supportive atmosphere at Trade.
We called it CLINIC xtra as we would like to welcome our clients to service beyond medical. While waiting in the drop in area, clients can catch up on the latest news, find out about Trade services, or talk to Trade worker available on site. Safer sex packs are also available and free to take away with a variety of resources available.
Date: Every Friday
Time: 12:00 – 2:00pm (last screening at 1:40pm)
