Community testing clinics
The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (LGF) runs two clinics in partnership with Manchester Public Health Development Service and the Manchester Centre for Sexual Health. One is a full sexual health screening service running weekly from two City Centre saunas, and LGF’s Community Resource Centre. The other offers point of care HIV testing. Clients are greeted by LGF staff who explain the tests available. Tests are performed by nurses who perform pre and post-test discussions.The testing services are publicised through LGF’s safer sex packs that promote their HIV testing campaign. LGF feel that clinics in saunas offer an opportunity to target men who might not access mainstream sexual health services.
