City Health Care Partnership CIC, who run the sexual and reproductive healthcare service ‘Conifer’ in the East Riding, have announced plans for new clinics and improvements to existing services across the area, which started on Tuesday 5th May.
This will mean that there will be a main service ‘hub’ in Beverley, which will provide a full range of services from contraception, including fitting coils and implants, and cervical smears to diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and help for sexual dysfunction. Until the new hub is ready, patients can go to a temporary venue at Castle Hill Hospital and the clinic for Beverley residents at Beverley Health Centre on Manor Road will continue.
Clinics in Driffield, Goole, Bridlington and Hessle will continue but in time they will be joined by new venues in Withernsea, Hornsea and Pocklington, giving East Riding residents much easier access to sexual health treatment and support.
