Sexual Health Services - Redesign Consultation
Birmingham City Council would like your views on sexual health services. We are responsible for making sure that effective services are available for the people in Birmingham and would really value your thoughts on what works well and where we could make things better. We are carrying out a review at the moment and your comments will help us decide how to improve things. You do not need to have used sexual health services to do this.
What are sexual health services?
Taking care of your sexual health means more than being free from sexually transmitted infections (STIs), or not having to face unplanned pregnancy as a result of ineffective contraception or no contraception at all. It means taking care of your health, your partner’s health, and your decisions about relationships.
Sexual health services are free and available to everyone regardless of age, sex, gender, ethnic origin and sexual orientation. In Birmingham, sexual health services and advice are offered in a range of settings including:
- GP Practices
- Contraception Clinics (also known as Family Planning clinics)
- Genito-urinary Medicine (GUM clinics)
- HIV Treatment and Support Services
- Young People’s Services
- Sexual Assault Centres
- Termination of Pregnancy Centres
Responsibility for commissioning many sexual health services moved from the NHS to Birmingham City Council on 1st April 2013. This provides the opportunity to reshape services for the future leading to better outcomes for clients, their families and the community.
We are seeking views on sexual health services to help us to plan future services. Your views and experiences are important to help us to get this right. You do not need to have used sexual health services to do this.
Please help us by letting us know your thoughts on sexual health services and what you think is important for the future by answering the following questions.
