PLEASE NOTE – From 4th January 2022, our Wigan services will be moving temporarily to our Leigh clinic, due to the redevelopment of Galleries Shopping Centre. As always, please call for an appointment first on 01942 483188.

23/12/21, IMPORTANT UPDATE – WE ARE STILL OPEN

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, some of our services will change from today onwards. Our top priority is the safety of our patients and staff, so please contact us via telephone in the first instance – not in person.

~ All drop-in/walk-in services across all our clinics will stop temporarily. This includes the Youth Drop-In sessions, which will be done by telephone appointment instead of face-to-face. Ring the clinic at the start of the Youth Drop-In session for a phone consultation appointment.

~ We are still delivering care by phone consultations – we have not closed. Our telephone lines for appointments open at 8:15am.

~ If you already have a face-to-face appointment, please ring us after 9am to check whether the clinic is still running.

Spectrum Sexual Health Service is still here for you, but we have to adapt due to increasing cases of COVID-19. With the situation ever-changing, follow us on social media for the latest updates. Thank you for your understanding.
