Sexual Health Clinic
Access to services during COVID-19
Effective March 15, 2021, sexual health services have been temporarily suspended. If you require any sexual health services, please visit a local walk-in clinic or your local health care provider. Réseau ACCESS Network can also provide testing for sexually transmitted or blood borne infections. Emergency appointments are available for clients with urgent needs, for example, clients requiring syphilis treatment, and birth control prescriptions and refills; however, they are limited.
Please call 705.522.9200 ext. 598 to speak with a sexual health nurse.
The Needle Exchange Program at the Elm Place site in Greater Sudbury has been relocated to Réseau ACCESS Network. Harm reduction supplies can be also be accessed at Ontario Aboriginal HIV/AIDS strategy and the Sudbury Action Centre for Youth.
Effective July 2, 2020, if you are visiting our office locations for service, you will need to wear a face covering (e.g. medical or a non-medical mask or other face covering) at all times. This is the case whether you are receiving services that involve close contact or not. Certain exceptions may apply (for example, based on age or medical circumstances). We encourage you to bring your own mask. If you don’t have a mask or forgot to bring yours, we will give you one for your appointment, supplies permitting.
The new requirement provides additional protection as distancing is not always guaranteed. To learn more about our current Public Health services and some of the changes in place due to COVID-19
