Bury’s Young Persons Advisory Service (YPAS) is moving form Parsons Lane to Townside Primary Care Centre this week on 11th January, 2012.
The service provides a free confidential, friendly advice service for young people up to the age of 20 years, for a range of health and wellbeing issues including contraception and sexual health.
The new premises on Knowsley Street, Bury, will ensure clients can continue to access the service with ease. It is centrally located, opposite the Town Hall and Interchange, within easy reach from bus and travel routes, as well as the nearby colleges.
Kim Robinson, Service Coordinator for Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Young people can still expect the same great service from YPAS; we’re just providing it from a new location. We can give advice on all aspects of sexual health, contraception and access to the condom distribution scheme. We also offer tests for sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia or help with deciding what contraception is right for you.”
YPAS operates a number of drop in clinics every week.
