 What is the Health Service at Base 51?

The Health Service at Base 51 has developed over recent years into a “Nurse Led” service, consisting of a Centre Nurse who is an extended nurse prescriber*.  This enables the Health Service to offer a comprehensive service based around sexual health support, information and screening for young people.

The Service is part of the holistic ethos of Base 51 and works with the multi-disciplinary team to provide an intergrated service to young people.

Our aim is to see all those young people who do not have access to mainstream services.

Services and Support Available

The Base 51 health service has a wide range of different support available, including:

> Pregnancy Testing

> Emergency contraception

> STI Screening

> Health Education and Promotion

> Advice and Support

> C Card Registration Point

> How to register with a GP

Base 51 is a member of the C-Card Scheme – this means that young people aged between 13 – 24 years can register at Base 51 and at other registration points throughout the City and collect condoms on a regular basis.
