York Student Health

Sexual Health Services

YorClinic is the Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and contraception service in York.

YorClinic is part of the Monkgate Health Centre at 31 Monkgate. You can make an appointment over the phone or call in and wait to be seen. All services are free and completely confidential… you don’t even have to give your real name. They may have to report a problem though if you are putting yourself or others at serious risk.

YorClinic covers the whole of North Yorkshire and they are the specialists in all aspects of sexual health. They provide family planning (contraception) services including prescriptions for some contraceptive pills and free condoms. Emergency contraception (morning after pill) is available here and you can also get longer lasting contraception fitted at the clinic including the implant and the coil. Confidential advice about pregnancy and your otions and STI testing is also available at YorClinic. Chlamydia testing doesn't need an appointment; under 25s can pick up a pack in the clinic or get one posted for free.

YorClinic runs a sexual health drop-in at Askham Bryan College (12noon - 2pm on Thursdays during term time), at York College (12noon - 2pm on Mondays during term time) and at the University of York (1pm - 3pm on Wednesdays during term time) providing sexual health advice, several types of contraception, chlamydia tests, free condoms and treatments.
