With a population of approximately 250,000, the city of Aberdeen stands between the Rivers Dee and Don. This historic city has many architectural splendours and the use of the sparkling local granite has earned Aberdeen the name of the ‘Silver City.’ Aberdeen is recognised as the oil capital of Europe, but nevertheless retains its old-fashioned charm and character making it an attractive place in which to live.
Aberdeen enjoys excellent communication services with other British cities – e.g. flying time to London is just over one hour with regular daily flights, road and rail links to all points North and South are excellent. There is a wide choice of high quality housing available within easy commuting distance.
Well known for its superb quality of life, Aberdeen enjoys first class amenities including: His Majesty's Theatre, Music Hall, Art Gallery, Museums and Beach Leisure centre. Education facilities are excellent and in addition to Regional Education Authority schools, there are two fee-paying schools for girls and one co-educational college. All three cater for primary and secondary pupils.
The Grampian Sexual Health Service (SHS) is an integrated Sexual Health Service hosted by the Aberdeen Health and Social Care Partnership to provide Sexual Health Services across Grampian (Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray).
The main SHS site is within the Aberdeen Community Health and Care Village, Frederick Street in the centre of Aberdeen. A wide range of services are offered at this central location including Community Gynaecology, Young Person’s clinics, Priority Access clinics, contraception including the provision of Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC), Emergency Contraception, Psychosexual Medicine and Ultrasound as well as testing, treatment and care for Sexually Transmitted infections (STIs) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV); vaccination and emergency care (such as post exposure prophylaxis for HIV) and prevention activity such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and free condom provision. Abortion care for residents in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire is also accessed and delivered within the Sexual Health Service.
A Forensic Suite for the provision of forensic assessment in cases of sexual assault and rape is also contained within the service; SHS, Forensic Physicians and Police Scotland facilitate joint working as part of this.
In addition to the main central site there are a number of SHS clinics delivered across Grampian. Weekly clinics are delivered in Elgin, Peterhead, Fraserburgh, Banff and Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) and Young Offenders Institute (YOI) Grampian.
