LiSH joins national campaign to highlight relationships, sex and disability
Lincolnshire Integrated Sexual Health Service (LiSH) will be raising awareness of relationships, sex and disability in support of this year's Sexual Health Week from September 16-22.
Staff from LiSH will be supporting this year's campaign from Brook, a young people’s charity, who are looking to normalise the conversations around sex and disability and supporting professionals to better equip the young people they work with.
LiSH will be travelling to colleges across the county throughout the week to spread the message as well as promoting Sexual Health Week at all LiSH clinics.
Heidi Shooter, Advanced Sexual Health Practitioner for LiSH, said: "We are looking forward to getting out into the community, talking to the public, offering advice and screening and answering any questions they may have on the subject of disability and access to quality sexual health.”
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.
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.
To access the online booking system and for further information about the service, including chlamydia screening, safer sex and the C-Card scheme, visit www.lincolnshiresexualhealth.nhs.uk.
