City Doc Travel Clinic
CityDoc is a UK leading provider of travel health vaccinations and medical services, and the Sheffield clinic operates from Wicker Pharmacy. City Doc offers a one-stop shop for all your travel vaccination and medication needs. We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre.
We can administer the following vaccinations, along with issuing appropriate anti-malarial medication for your trip:
Emergency Hormonal Contraception
If you have had unprotected sex or you think the condom split during sex, then you may need emergency contraception. Emergency Hormonal Contraception (More commonly known as the ‘Morning After Pill’) is available for purchase from Wicker Pharmacy and is available free of charge for 14-17 year olds via an NHS funded service.
It can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex - however, the earlier the better. Please note that the pharmacist will have a confidential discussion with you first to make sure this is the correct course of action to take. In the discussion, the pharmacist will assess the suitability of emergency contraception for you and can advise you on the risks of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as providing information about what to do in the long term, such as considering options for ongoing contraception.

Medicine Use Review
In an effort to limit the spread of blood borne viruses, we operate a needle exchange scheme. This provides injecting drug users with clean needles and other paraphernalia, reducing the risk of infection. All used items are placed in tamperproof "sharps" burn bins and incinerated. If you find an unidentified needle or syringe, DO NOT attempt to dispose of it yourself. Call Streetforce on (0114) 273 4567 who will arrange for the disposal of the item in question.
We also provide information on harm minimisation, referral into treatment and supervised consumption of prescribed treatments. This service is frequently used to support people taking medicines daily to manage substance misuse problems, but could be used for other medicines such as medicines to treat tuberculosis. This is a user-friendly, non-judgemental service, and includes the provision of support and advice about your specific medicine.
This service is commissioned by the Sheffield DAAT.
