The Galleries clinic now has a greater capacity to manage demand for procedures such implants, coil fittings and some STI treatments after assessing the needs of patients and their feedback. To utilise the Leigh Health Centre, an extra walk-in clinic has been added on Tuesday mornings which will provide STI testing, pregnancy testing and some contraception.

Sue Hansford, Head of Service at Wigan and Leigh Integrated Sexual Health said: “We have recognised the increased demand from patients in Wigan and Leigh for sexual health services and we have made these changes to address this issue.  We will continue to listen to patients and be responsive to their sexual health needs.”
