Sexual Health Services
During the COVID-19 outbreak we are providing remote self-screening to POW clients or those at high risk and in need of sexual health screening. We can screen for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, syphilis and Hep C using swabs, urine samples and finger prick blood testing kits. Please contact us via our social media pages or outreach phone number to request a home screening appointment.
POW partners with NHS Sexual Health Services and The Health Shop to provide comprehensive sexual health screening, contraception and sexual health treatment for any client at POW.
NHS Sexual health nurses attend the POW drop-in service every Thursday from 2pm-5.30pm to hold a sexual health clinic. In addition, the specialist nurses hold a migrant only sexual health clinic on the second Monday of every month from 2pm-4pm. Any migrant clients who would like to be seen should book through Diana, however booking is not always essential.
Sexual health nurses also attend home visits and off-street outreach sessions on a monthly basis to provide screening and advice to off-street workers at their request.
POW also works with The Health Shop to provide sexual health services on an outreach basis, as well as at our newly created Student Only sexual health drop-in session which is the first Monday of every month from 1pm-4pm. If you are a student involved in the adult sex industry please feel free to drop-in or contact us about this clinic and any support you may want.
During the COVID outbreak and with the POW building being closed our Drugs Clinic is temporarily shut. Anyone requiring support with drug treatment should contact the Nottingham Recovery Network on 0800 066 5362 to access treatment.
Every Thursday at POW from 2pm-5pm we have a specialist drugs clinic, run by partners in the NHS and Nottingham Recovery Network, for people who want to undertake detox and be provided with the appropriate prescription services to support them with withdrawal or reduction from drugs.
New clients need to book in for this service prior to attending, however booking is not always essential. Please contact our team if you feel this service is right to meet your needs.
The last Thursday of every month we have an experienced Physiotherapist who has volunteered her time to help POW clients with physical aches, pains and health needs which can be addressed through physiotherapy. Booking for this clinic is not essential but is on a first come, first served basis.
