We would like to give the team the biggest thanks for providing such an excellent service on-campus for the last couple of years. Unfortunately after two fantastic years of hosting the Contraception and Sexual Health (CaSH) Clinic in our Advice & Support Centre, this service is no longer available. The CaSH Clinic closure is due to the Sexual Health Hertfordshire services moving from a ‘hub and spoke’ model to 3 specialist Centres of Excellence (based in Hatfield, Stevenage and Watford). We're really pleased that students will still be able to access this service in Hatfield. You can find details for the new clinics here. For full details about the changes, read more here from Hertfordshire County Council.
