Sexual Health Services

 

 

De Montfort Students' Union offers you sexual health services during your time at DMU.

NHS Choices runs every Thursday - more details below.

We are also in the process of setting up our popular SSH student-led clinic again very soon - watch this space! 

 

On Tuesday 28th November and Tuesday 5th December between 2 - 4, there will be the opportunity to attend a Sexual Health clinic here at DSU.

Students will be given the chance to sign up for the C Card, receive free condoms and get help with Chlamydia testing. 

This will be on a drop in basis. 

 

                                                                     

 

Choices is run by trained healthcare professionals from Leicestershire and Rutland Sexual Health Services. Choices runs on Thursdays 2 - 4:30 in term time. This is via a drop in available through DSU Reception. 

Please be aware that this is a well used service and there is the possibility that the wait time to be seen could be lengthly. 

Choices will provide:

  • Provision of prescribed hormonal contraceptives including LARC methods
  • Sexual health testing including Chlamydia screening and treatment
  • Emergency contraception
  • Pregnancy tests and free condoms will be available via the C Card service.

Positive links with local services, health partners, school nurses and the college team supports the CHOICES provision.

Staffing

One specialist practitioner will attend each week who is a Non-Medical Prescriber, so is able to prescribe hormonal methods of contraception, emergency hormonal contraception and sexual health screen and treatment. The qualified member of the CHOICES team will be supported by a highly qualified health care assistant who can undertake routine STI screen, Pregnancy testing and pregnancy referrals and may run part of the service as a Screen & Go clinic.
