All Contraception and Sexual Health Services are open access which means that people can use any clinics in any area.

In Manchester the Northern Sexual Health, Contraception and HIV Service offers advice, sexual health screening and treatment, and management of sexually transmitted infections including HIV.

If you think you might have an infection, or just want a sexual health check-up, the doctors and nurses at Northern clinics in Manchester will be happy to help.  These clinics are free and confidential. Opening times and information about how to book an appointment can be found on the Northern's website.

The Northern also offers an online service for Manchester residents who have no symptoms but would like a sexual health check-up using a kit sent through the post. You will need to create an account to request a kit. Return the completed tests in a freepost envelope and results are available online within 14 days.

Your sexual health is a key part of your physical, mental and social well-being. Whether you’re in a relationship, don’t have a regular partner or are not currently having sex, taking care of your sexual health is important.

More information about sexual health can be found on the Sexwise and Greater Manchester Health Hub websites.
