De Montfort Students' Union offers you sexual health services during your time at DMU with two clinics during term time.
Our own SSH student-led clinic runs every Tuesday termly and NHS Choices clinic runs every Thursday termly.
SSH is run by student volunteers who have been trained by qualified health professionals. SSH can help with C Card sign ups, free condoms and is a good starting point to discuss any aspect of your sexual health.
Anything you tell is treated in the strictest of confidence.
SSH runs on Tuesdays 12 - 4 in term time. This is via a drop in available through DSU Reception.
Choices is run by trained healthcare professionals from Leicestershire and Rutland Sexual Health Services.
Choices runs on Thursdays 1 - 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.
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.
On days when Choices or SSH is not running, help and advice can be obtained at St Peters Health Centre.
