Sexual Health

Your sexual health is very important. We can provide emergency contraception if you need it and also carry out a pregnancy test if you think you are already pregnant.

You might be offered post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to reduce the risk of HIV infection. We don’t provide STI testing and wider sexual health services at the SARC but we can arrange appointments with local Sexual Health Clinics at an appropriate time for you. Alternatively you can arrange this yourself.

Sexual Health services in Teesside are provided by Virgin Care: www.thesexualhealthhub.co.uk 0300 330 1122

How we’re funded

SARC Teesside is jointly commissioned by NHS England and the Police Crime Commissioner for Cleveland.

Charitable donations also help support our work.

The SARC Teesside support service Crisis Workers provide 24/7 support for all victims of rape and other sexual offences.

Crisis worker support: Excellent, very supportive, listened and gave good advice. A massive thank you to the staff for being so supportive with my daughter and myself at this traumatic time for her. You do an excellent job.
