NHS Lothian’s new Chalmers Sexual Health Centre opened its doors on Tuesday this week. The centre has been designed to provide a purpose built ‘one-stop-shop’ for sexual health services. The Family Planning & Well Women service previously based at Dean Terrace and the Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) department at Lauristion Building have been combined to provide the services in the new centre.
The Edinburgh Family Planning Trust has played a key role in the creation of the Chalmers Sexual Health Centre. A stained glass window entitled 'The Family', has been installed in the new building in recognition of the Trust’s contribution to improving the sexual health of the people of Edinburgh and Lothian since it was established, almost 80 years ago. Designed by Scottish artist, Pinkie Maclure, the window reflects the diversity of people who use the Chalmers Sexual Health Centre.
