Visiting update

From 1 January 2022, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend adult in-patient visiting in order to help protect our vulnerable patients. Please visit here for more information. 

Patient appointments

As we continue to see a rise in our urgent care admissions, a surge in admissions of Covid positive patients, and workforce shortages created by Covid isolation, some appointments for planned care may need to be delayed.

We will continue to prioritise urgent and emergency care and cancer treatments and we will do everything we can to avoid delaying care. If we need to take the difficult decision to delay appointments, we will contact affected patients directly to let them know. 

If you do not hear from us, please attend as requested in your appointment letter.

New COVID-19 advice for patients living with HIV who have additional health risks

The NHS has recently reviewed their advice for individuals with certain health conditions should they contract COVID and be symptomatic, but not require hospitalisation, as there are some treatment options now available for certain groups in the community. 

Medications called neutralising monoclonal antibodies (nMABs) are now recommended as a treatment option for high risk non-hospitalised adults in the community with COVID.  They need to be given within 72 hours of having a positive COVID polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. 

Where treatment with an nMAB is contraindicated or not possible, eligible individuals may be offered a COVID antiviral as an alternative.

If you develop COVID-type symptoms AND test positive for COVID infection on a PCR test AND you meet the criteria as having additional health issues, you will be contacted by the central hub in Nottingham to offer community treatment.



COVID-19 Important Notice:

In view of the ongoing Coronavirus situation, My-Sexual-Health will require all attendees to book a telephone consultation for our service via our central booking number to allow appropriate triage.  If your symptoms warrant a face to face visit then this will be arranged.  We will not be accepting walk-in patients or online bookings for the time being.  We apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.

For additional genital infection advice during the Covid-19 restrictions, please click on the "Services Offered" link and then "STI Screening & Treatment" (includes information regarding current online testing arrangements)

Sexual-Health provides free and confidential sexually transmitted infection (STI) screening and treatment, information and advice on sexual health matters and the full range of reversible contraception methods, including emergency contraception.

On Monday 4th April 2016, the provision of STI and contraception services across mid-Nottinghamshire changed, in that all the previous Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) and Contraception & Sexual Health (CaSH) sites were combined to offer an integrated sexual health service called My-Sexual-Health

The community Sexual Health Clinics (formerly CaSH clinics) continue to offer sexual health services with appointments. These clinics are staffed by experienced sexual health nurses. Should you require to be seen by one of our specialist doctors, you may be referred to The Hub clinic at King’s Mill Hospital.

The Hub (formerly the GUM clinic) at Level 5, Tower 3 in King’s Mill Hospital continues to offer a full range of STI, contraceptive and HIV services for those wishing to book an appointment, and for those referred in from a community Sexual Health Clinic.

We hope you will experience a high quality service from My-Sexual-Health and we welcome your feedback.

Please telephone the central booking line 01623 672260 for clinic times, information or to arrange an appointment for our service.

My-Sexual-Health staff work to a number of national guidelines, including those set by:

  • British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH)
  • Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH)
  • British HIV Association (BHIVA)
  • National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)

We also follow our own service and NHS Trust local policies and procedures, and other national guidelines which take into account the requirements of both BHIVA and BASHH.
