PlayZone in Leicester
Play Zone was a “sex on premises” project initiated n 2009 by Terrence Higgins Trust. A national code of practice for sex venues was drawn up and venues were awarded certification if they met those standards. The project required other organisations to become “codepartners” to audit the standards effectively and Trade Sexual Health approached the local GUM clinic to become their “codepartners”. This partnership resulted in the creation of a weekly testing clinic in a sauna. The clinic is jointly run by GUM and Trade and offers full sexual health screens and Hep B vaccinations, whilst Trade promotes the clinic and offers sexual health advice and referrals to other services. In 2010 the clinic was recognised by Leicester Primary Care Trust with an NHS Gem award.
