The sexual health of young people in Leeds is being given a boost thanks to an innovative piece of equipment.
Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust has introduced a self-service pod in five of its Contraception and Sexual Health (CaSH) drop-in clinics allowing young people to receive contraception and sexual health advice more quickly and confidentially.

By using the self-service pod clients will no longer have to queue to confirm they have arrived for an appointment and can also register their details in a more private setting. The pod aims to improve the experience of visiting a CaSH clinic in hope that clients would be more likely to return should they have any other sexual health issues in the future or recommend the clinic to a friend.

Julie Arundale, head of CaSH at Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “Some people who come to our clinics can be embarrassed about their condition or symptoms and our self-service pod can allay any fears clients have about attending CaSH clinics. The feedback we have had from young people has been overwhelmingly positive and we are pleased the pods have been so well received.”

The triage pod is available in the following locations:

Armley Moor Health Centre, Town Street, LS12 3HD
Beeston Village Medical Centre, James Reed House, Town Street, LS11 8PN
Burmantofts Health Centre, Cromwell Mount, LS9 7ST
Reginald Centre, 263 Chapeltown Road, LS7 3EX
Citywise Under 25s Clinic, 1 Eastgate, LS2 7LY
