Men4Men SHOP is now working in collaboration with Luton & Dunstable Hospital GUM services, at the popular gay men's sauna, Greenhouse. The aim of the service is to allow men to access all the screening expected from a GUM clinic. Men can choose to have a test from the throat, rectum or penis for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. We also offer blood testing for Syphilis, HIV, Hep B, Hep C and a full Hep B vaccination programme. The service runs on the third Thursday of the month from 5pm to 8pm, with a clinician and health advisor on hand to provide the tests/vaccinations whilst a Men4Men SHOP member of staff is available for men to talk to about safer sex, information on HIV, STI's, Men4Men SHOP services and encouraging men to test whilst they have services in house.

Supported by The Greenhouse SaunasThe sauna is completely backing the venture with manager Darren saying - "It's important to me and the owners of the Greenhouse that the men who visit us feel that we have their good health as well as their enjoyment at heart, I want everyone to know that they can have fun and have a healthy sex life." One of the first men who used the Thursday clinic said - "I very much appreciate what the guys from Men4Men SHOP and the GUM Staff are doing for us. A big thank-you to you all. You guys are doing a great service and wish you all the best. If any guys want some confidential advice or check up, then these guys are not to be missed."

To further support the GUM clinic there is free entry to those men who only wish to visit the clinic and not use the services offered by the sauna. The clinic is held in a private room and there are options available to allow a choice as to how people would like to receive the results of any of the tests they have had taken. This is with the aim of ensuring as high a level of confidentiality as possible. No appointment is needed, just turn up at the clinic on third Thursday between 5pm & 8pm.
