Sexual Health services

Good sexual health means making sure you have the knowledge, skills and ability to make informed sexual choices and act responsibly to protect your health and the health of others.

Many Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) have no symptoms and people often don’t know that they are infected. Fortunately many Sexually Transmitted Infections can be quickly and effectively treated.

Although STIs are extremely common, there’s good news. Using condoms can hugely reduce the risk of getting an STI, and, if you do get one, treating STIs is easy in most cases – if caught early.

You can find a information on common STIs by visiting Play Safe.

Everyone who is sexually active needs to be thinking about regular sexual health check-ups with their GP or sexual health clinic.
