Your appointment will be provided within a COVID secure environment this may include an initial telephone/video consultation, followed by a face to face appointment.

Shacc is a new integrated, networked, NHS sexual health service in Leicester funded by Leicester City Primary Care Trust. We 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 at your own practice if it is one of our 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.

As our clinic appointments take place among st 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.

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

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.
