Diversity means appreciating multiple differences and respecting people’s values, beliefs, cultures and lifestyles.
We offer free, non-judgemental and confidential service in all our clinics, including Haymarket Health in Leicester. This enables easy access to services for all and is very discreetly placed.
Our staff come from very diverse backgrounds, so we better understand the needs and expectations of the communities we serve.
We promise we will not criticise, judge or challenge people who come to our service.
We treat every person with dignity and respect. We have a strict confidentiality policy which is followed by all staff.
We are exploring opportunities to promote sexual health knowledge and services, including contraception and infection screening to encourage engagement with health services and build links between those from Black, Asian and minority communities in Leicester City.
We can offer drop-in sessions, group chats or similar, depending on the service type, to empower individuals to control their health.
The provision aims to identify the sexual health needs of these communities in Leicester to dissolve barriers to accessing sexual health services through promoting wellbeing and reducing negativity towards addressing sexual health needs and cultural factors.
