Spectrum launches new sexual health clinic

A new sexual health clinic, which will provide high-quality, non-judgemental sexual health advice and services, is set to open at Wakefield’s Trinity Walk Shopping Centre on April 19.

Trinity Walk Clinic, run by Spectrum Community Health CIC, is located to the rear of Asda Living in the shopping centre and will bring together two Spectrum sexual health teams from King Street and Margaret Street to offer a full range of services and advice.
