Men's clinics

Covid-19 Update

The men's sauna clinics will restart in the week commencing 2nd August 2021.

To book an appointment for these clinics, call Leicester Sexual Health on 0300 124 0102 and ask to book an appointment for the outreach clinic at either Splash or Club 29.

A very limited number of drop-in appointments will also be available.

You can still access a full sexual health screening via online STI postal testing kits. Click here to order.

We understand that in some cases having an HIV or STI test kit delivered to your place of residence and/or carrying out the test at home may not be feasible or convenient for several reasons. If so, please contact us to discuss other options available for you.

If you are displaying symptoms of any sexually transmitted infections, you are advised to call Leicester Sexual Health on 0300 124 0102 for a phone consultation during their usual opening hours.

Screening for Men

The aim of the service is to allow gay & bisexual men access to all the screening expected from a local NHS sexual health clinic. Men can choose to give a urine sample and swab tests from the throat and rectum to test for chlamydia and gonorrhoea. The clinic also offers blood testing for syphilis, HIV and Hepatitis B.

The openly gay male nurse is available to provide the tests.

The clinic is in a private room with men able to choose how they receive their results to ensure confidentiality. All information is kept strictly confidential, and men can return to the sauna for their results the following week if they wish.

The weekly clinics are open to gay & bisexual men and other men who have sex with men.
