Your Sexual Health Matters @ Home

The Integrated Sexual Health Service have launched a campaign to highlight the new online services that patients can now access from their own homes. A number of new online services have been trialled over the last few months, to enable patients to continue to access sexual health advice, testing, treatment and contraception to promote good sexual health and wellbeing. The following new services are free, confidential, discrete and non-judgemental:

  • Condoms by post – this includes C-Card for 13-24 year olds and 24 years+
  • Oral contraception – virtual assessment and prescriptions posted out
  • Postal emergency contraception (over 16s only). Under 16s can still contact the service to request emergency contraception via our information and booking line
  • STI & HIV testing – including treatment for chlamydia by post
  • Virtual Sexual Health Promotion Practitioner advice
  • Photo diagnosis for lumps, bumps and warts (18 years old and over)

For more information visit the website: www.yoursexualhealthmatters.org.uk or contact the Information and Booking line: 0800 328 3383.
