A NEW, integrated sexual health service has been formally opened at Rotherham Hospital.

The unit has been offering advice, testing and treatment since April 1.

But it was officially launched last Tuesday by Cllr David Roche, Rotherham Borough Council’s cabinet member for public health.

Previously, contraception, testing and treatment were offered at Rotherham Hospital and Rotherham Community Health Centre in Greasbrough Road.

But all services have now been brought together at the hospital, with some offered at community centres and other venues when needed.

The new, centralised department is on level C at the hospital.

It is open from 9am to 8pm, Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm on Friday, 10am to 2pm on Saturday and 11am to 2pm on Sunday.

We want to continue holding local authorities to account, attending court and council meetings, as well as providing breaking news, competitions and offers – but it costs money. Online advertising does not cover costs, therefore we feel the need to ask for your help in ensuring we can provide the best possible coverage, online and in our printed products.
