The new integrated contraception and sexual health service will be known as iCaSH Milton Keynes from 1 April 2020. It will provide contraception, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment, the PrEP Trial and psychosexual services, from easily accessible locations across Milton Keynes.
Service users will continue to access services at 624 South Fifth Street and Milton Keynes University Hospital (Luing Cowley Outpatients Building), delivered by the same staff.
We are also excited to introduce iCaSH Express Test – a free, confidential and easy way to test for STIs without coming into clinic. This is suitable for anyone living in Milton Keynes, who is aged 16 and over and does not have symptoms. They simply log on to our website and order a kit, which will be posted to their address. Once the kit is complete, they simply return via the freepost envelope included.
Outreach – In addition to the two main sites above we will deliver services from Westfield Road Surgery, MK2 2DJ and Wolverton Health Centre, MK12 5DF. We will benefit from the expertise provided through a partnership with Terrence Higgins Trust, who will deliver sexual health education and outreach services.
The HIV care and treatment service will remain with Milton Keynes University Hospitals NHS Trust.
