This guidance and the associated flow-chart has been produced to assist professionals in Kirklees, who are working with children and young people under 18, to respond to situations where it comes to their attention that a young person is engaged in sexual activity.
The Brunswick Centre
The Brunswick Centre provides sexual health and HIV services across Calderdale & Kirklees. The Centre is a registered charity (charity no. 1015450) and company limited by guarantee (registration number 2764525).
There are two service teams within the Brunswick Centre, the HIV Support team which provides services to people infected with or directly affected by HIV and the HIV Prevention team which provides HIV prevention and Sexual Health promotion services to Gay, Bi-sexual and other men who have sex with men and to Black Africans and other communities at increased risk of HIV.

Locala Sexual Health Service
A ‘Queue and Fit Clinic for Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives’ (LARC) clinic will run from Dewsbury Health Centre every Wednesday from 9am to 12:30pm and patients can turn up and wait to be seen to have LARC fitted.
A number of evening ‘queue and wait’ appointments where patients can turn up and be seen by a practitioner on the same day will be offered from Princess Royal Health Centre, Huddersfield and Dewsbury Health Centre:
- Princess Royal Health Centre’s Sexual Health Clinic on Wednesdays between 11:30am and 6:30pm
- Dewsbury Health Centre on Tuesdays between 11:30am and 6:30pm.. This is in response to patients asking for the ability to access evening ‘queue and wait’ appointments across both sites.
A new clinic has also been added to the Sexual Health clinics offered at Howard House, Bradford, which began last August. This was a result of service users asking for a dedicated ‘queue and wait’ clinic solely for those under 18 years of age. This is now taking place every Wednesday from 4pm to 6pm at Howard House Bradford.
For full details and times of the clinics and services we offer, visit www.locala.org.uk/services/sexual-health.
All service users are able to self-refer either by coming along to a queue and wait clinics, or by booking an appointment in advance by calling 030 3330 9981 in Kirklees and 030 3330 9500 in Bradford.
The overall purpose of the NHS Kirklees Commissioned Condom Scheme is to reduce the incidence of STIs and unplanned pregnancies.
