About MOT

Men Only Tayside

Men Only Tayside (MOT) is an innovative sexual health partnership between NHS Tayside and Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland, operating successfully for a number of years. Our vision is that all gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men (MSM) living in Tayside are able to access sexual healthcare together with HIV prevention and support services free from stigma or prejudice.

​MOT provides free and confidential sexual health services for gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men (MSM). Our services are welcoming, inclusive, and responsive to local need and open to trans men and trans women. We work in local communities throughout Tayside providing sexual health information, advice and training as well as practical resources like free condoms and lube. We run regular health promotion events and attend specific events like university and college Freshers’ Fairs. We have been awarded the LGBT Youth Scotland Gold Charter Mark.

MenOnlyTayside.com is the copyright of NHS Tayside. It was designed and developed by NHS Tayside Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Managed Care Network in partnership with gay and bi-sexual men across Tayside and Faff Digital, a local app and website design company.

NHS Tayside would like to thank all the men who took part in our local needs assessment and focus groups.  Their input into the site and the MOT service is invaluable.
