Which clinic is right for me?

We run two main types of sexual health clinics:  GUM clinics (genitourinary medicine clinics) for patients living in County Durham and Darlington which specialise in sexual infections and CaSH clinics (contraception and sexual health clinics) for patients living within the Durham County Council local authority area which specialise in contraception. 

For Contraceptive and Sexual Health service provision in Darlington please see Darlington Borough Council's website:


'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
