Funding from the European Union's INTERRREG IVA programme has enabled the HSE to establish, for the first time, a sexual health Genito Urinary Clinic (GUM) in Monaghan Hospital. This means that anybody concerned about their sexual health will now have access to a locally-based GUM service in the Cavan and Monaghan area. The EU funding for this new service was secured by Co-operation and Working Together (CAWT), the cross border health services partnership, in which the HSE is a partner.
The new sexual health clinic commenced in December 2012 and is based at the Outpatients Dept in Monaghan Hospital. The clinic operates Tuesday mornings, from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Appointments can be made by telephoning 086 8241847 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. The clinic is delivered by a multidisciplinary team and provides a comprehensive service for people concerned about sexually transmitted infections and their sexual health in general.
Confidentiality is an important aspect in the delivery of sexual health services at Monaghan Hospital. Our staff are professionally trained in dealing with sexual health problems and providing advice, education and information, so please contact us directly at 086 8241847 or your GP to make an appointment should you have any concerns.
