What we do

Here at The Health Shop, we offer advice and support on a wide range of issues regarding substance abuse and sexual health.

Due to current circumstances condom collection is the only service that can be provided on a drop-in basis.  Please ring for an appointment for screening.

Sexual health:

We are currently providing a postal kit sexual health service which offers non-invasive testing for sexually transmitted infections (including oral and anal screening) for people who don’t have any symptoms*. We can offer appointments for hepatitis B vaccinations.

We provide a range of condoms, lube and gloves and also have specific information on chemsex.

The service is a C-Card registration and pick up point.
