Firth Park Clinic and Vasectomy Service are unaffected.

Sexual Health Sheffield provides a range of free and confidential services including free testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV.

There are many different types of STIs and they can affect people differently. Some STIs have symptoms including discomfort and irritation or can make it painful going to the toilet or having sex. Other STIs may have long-term effects on your health, including your ability to have children (infertility) and some STIs have no symptoms at all.

If you are sexually active, a regular sexual health check-up is recommended – especially if you change partners.
