Sexual Health

Victoria Park Health Centre is affiliated with SHACC (Sexual Health and Contraception Clinic)

About the service

SHACC is a new integrated, networked, NHS sexual health service in Leicester funded by Leicester City Primary Care Trust. the aim to be quick and local, providing contraception and early pregnancy advice, as well as investigation and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.
You can choose to be seen here at Victoria Park Health Centre, as we are one of the provider practices, or at another one nearby (or at the existing GUM or family planning service, if you prefer). If you are registered with a city GP, they can refer you to us for services such as contraceptive implant fitting, coils or vasectomy if they don't provide the service themselves.

To make an appointment please call the SHACC telephone line on 0800 75 66 277.

Lines are open between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday

Working together over the last few years, we decided to take up the challenge of looking at the way sexual health services are delivered in our city.

Our aim is to help tackle some of the local issues in sexual health such as a high teenage pregnancy rate, increasing demand for sexual health services and poor access to long acting reversible contraceptive methods.

The clinic appointments take place amongst ordinary GP/nurse surgeries to help 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.

SHACC is a group of primary care organisations in Leicester City. We have interests and skills in the area of sexual health.
