New sexual health clinic in Bury
A former archaeological services base in Bury St Edmunds has become a one-stop shop for sexual health services.
Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust has transformed 9-10 Chuchyard into Abbey View Clinic to be used as iCaSH (integrated Contraception and Sexual Health) Suffolk’s hub in the town.
Services were previously run from Blomfield House in Looms Lane, as a temporary solution until the town centre premises were ready. Staff have successfully transferred to the new building and have been seeing patients there since the end of February.
Allison Chaplin, iCaSH Suffolk Services Manager, said: “Everyone has settled in well. The move allows us to provide an integrated bespoke one-stop shop in Bury, so that local people can come for one appointment and deal with all issues relating to their continued good sexual health.”
