Lincolnshire Sexual Health Service launches online registration for C-Card Scheme
Young people aged 16-19*, across Lincolnshire are now able to register online for Lincolnshire Sexual Health’s C-Card Scheme. The scheme provides free condoms, lube and sexual health information for young people. Previously, registration was only possible via specific C-Card provider locations.
By clicking on https://lincolnshiresexualhealth.nhs.uk/c-card-scheme/register, the applicant simply answers a short questionnaire and views a condom demonstration video. They will then receive a personal C-Card as well as condoms and lube delivered discreetly to their door within days.
LiSH, which is run by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, provides confidential and non-judgmental advice, testing and treatment for all aspects of sexual health, including contraception.
Heidi Shooter, Advanced Sexual Health Practitioner – Clinical team for lead for LiSH, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer a confidential and easy way for young people across Lincolnshire to sign up for our C-Card Scheme, who may be unable to access our clinics, their local pharmacy or other registration points.
“The C-Card Scheme offers young people the opportunity to become a member confidentially, ensuring dignity and discretion throughout the process.”
The central booking line (01522 309309) can be used to book appointments at any of Lincolnshire's sexual health clinics, from 8am-7.30pm, Monday to Thursday, or 8am-4.30pm on Fridays.
