COVID-19 has drastically impacted the services we offer and how we work with service users.
The casework team spoke to 301 people living with HIV positive in under 72 hours. They were all extremely anxious about having to self-isolate and how they were going to earn a living.
Since the lockdown, NAZ has been actively supporting the immediate needs of our clients: providing food, referrals and advice on welfare and benefits.
Services In Covid
Weekly food and toiletries drop off.
Case support to access funds, benefits and housing.
Open Mic – call and speak to us about what’s on your mind.
Counselling service – free counselling service.
Campaigning – making sure those in power understand the impact COVID-19 is having on our communities and holding to account on how they respond.
HIV Care & Support
The NAZ HIV Care and Support Service is dedicated to enabling people to accept their diagnosis and live life to its fullest.
We offer a range of programmes tailored to serve different needs, creating a safe and supportive community.
Counselling & Wellbeing
We provide counselling and psychotherapy to those experiencing difficulties with their sexuality, relationships and sexual health.
Policy & Advocacy
We influence policy and practice to address the challenges and sexual health inequalities our communities face.
What we do
Our work is situated in a sobering reality. BAME communities are disproportionately impacted by poor HIV, sexual and reproductive health compared to their white counterparts:
The highest population rates of STI diagnoses are among people of Black or mixed ethnicity, with Black Caribbeans having the highest diagnosis rates of many STIs of all ethnic groups. The majority of these cases are among persons living in areas of high deprivation. These high rates of STI diagnoses are most likely due to a combination of cultural, economic and behavioural factors.
This disproportionality is particularly pronounced for gonorrhoea1 which increased in diagnoses by 34% between 2017 and 2018 for people of Black Caribbean ethnicity.
In 2018, 52% of Black African heterosexual women were diagnosed at a late stage of HIV infection in 2018, compared to 43% overall.
Mothers from Black ethnicities are at nearly five times higher risk of dying in childbirth than white mothers.
At the heart of our work is a passion and drive to redress sexual health inequalities to enable all people from minority communities to enjoy positive sexual health and well-being.
Our work is available in multiple languages and works across four key areas:
Care and Support Services for people impacted and living with HIV
Sexual health prevention and promotions services
Clinical Services: HIV/ selected STI pop-up services and psycho therapeutic counselling
Research, influencing and policy

The service offers appoitments and walk in clinics - all in the strictest confidence
TriHealth offers a confidential, non-judgemental service that is freely accessible to people of all ages.
The service is provided by Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust working in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council. Within this service, we wish to provide personalised care in a friendly atmosphere, fully meeting the sexual health needs of each individual person.
What happens at our clinics?
We offer at all our clinics:

- All forms of contraception including emergency contraception
- HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C screening and Hepatitis B vaccination
- Care and support for people living with HIV
- Advice, support, and information about all sexual health concerns
- Free condoms
- Referral for psychosexual counselling.
Information you discuss with us is strictly confidential. Your records are kept in the Sexual Health Department and your information would not normally be shared with any other hospital department or your GP without your knowledge.
We will not give your test results to anyone else without your permission. On the rare occasion that we do need to give information to a third party, we will always aim to tell you. The only reason we would do this is if we felt you or someone else were at risk of serious harm.
How long will you be in the clinic?
When you drop into the walk in clinic it may already be full to capacity which unfortunately means we may not be able to see you that day. You will be offered an appointment to attend another day. Any urgent cases will be assessed daily through a nurse triage system.
We do not fit or remove implants or coils in walk in clinics
If you have come to a ‘walk-in’ session, they can be very busy and you may be here for up to 2-3 hours. If you have come for an appointment, we aim to see you within half an hour of your given time. Seeing the doctor/nurse, having tests taken, and getting your results and treatment can take up to one hour.
Phone: 01159 932571
