About our service

Shacc is an integrated part of the NHS sexual health service in Leicester. We aim to be quick and local, providing contraception and early pregancy advice as well as investigation and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.

You can choose to be seen at your own practice if it is one of our provider practices or at another one nearby (or at the integrated sexual health service, if you prefer). If you are registered with a city or county GP they can refer you to us for services such as contraceptive implant fitting and coils (but not vasectomy now), if they don't provide the service themselves.

As our clinic appointments take place amongst ordinary GP/nurse surgeries this helps preserve your confidentiality, which we take very seriously. As our staff are all experienced primary care professionals too this helps a holistic approach, especially if you choose your own practice team.

Our local teams meet regularly for updating and training.
