Plymouth sexual health services at The Zone extended

Services at a youth centre in Devon have been extended to make it easier for young people to get advice and treatment for sexual health problems.

4U at The Zone in Plymouth will provide a new drop-in service five days a week for under 25's.

The service will enable people to be tested for concerns such as chlamydia and be treated on the same day.

Previously the service was by appointment only and treatment was often provided at a later date.

Mike Jarman, chief executive of the Zone, said: "Sexual health has come a long way in the past 10 years and it is great that we can now offer a walk-in service.

"The Zone doesn't just offer a sexual health service. We also have trained youth workers that are on hand to give advice in a range of fields."

The new walk-in clinics are available on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, Tuesday evenings and Saturday daytime.
