In order to protect patients, staff and members of the public during the current outbreak of Coronavirus, Spectrum Community Health is now running a reduced service. These changes are in line with national guidance and are vital to ensure that vulnerable patients are protected from COVID-19.

Gateway Plaza Clinic is operating telephone appointments during the hours below.

Providers of sexual health services in Barnsley have altered the way care is provided during the pandemic, but they are still open and are providing telephone appointments and consultations. They may still be able to see you if you require urgent care. Further information, including opening times and contact details, are in the tabs below.
