Sexual Health Support

Sex can be an important part of our lives and it can bring up a variety of feelings; both good and bad. It can be exciting, fun and loving but nerves and worries can also be part of the mix. This is why is it important that we feel ready to make that next step.

This page provides information and signposting to services relating to sexual health for young people. You will also find useful links and resources, local sexual health services and useful videos around sexual health in order to help you find what you are looking for.

To live a healthy lifestyle we should feel good mentally, emotionally and physically. Good sexual health means that we understand consent, avoid infections, illnesses and take responsibility to ensure that we protect ourselves and others, both physically and emotionally.

Your Sexual Health Matters

Whilst lockdown has presented the Integrated Sexual Health Service with many challenges around patients not being able to access their services in the way they would do normally, it has also given us an opportunity to progress sexual health services online. The service now has a number of services that patients can access from their own homes.

The following new services are free, confidential 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 the 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)

Shore (for teenagers aged 13-18 years)

We understand that being online is important for children and young people.

It’s also important to feel in control of what happens in the digital world. Being online can be confusing, and you can encounter conflicting advice and information on sexual relationships through pornography, social media or other online sources.

Our website offers upfront and clear information on sex and the law to make sure you:

  • are well informed
  • feel supported
  • know where you can go for help if you have any concerns or questions
