Solent NHS Trust is the new provider of integrated specialist sexual health services across Hampshire, Portsmouth & Southampton bringing together a range of different sexual health services which are currently provided by organisations including Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, Basingstoke Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Winchester and Eastleigh Healthcare NHS Trust, bpas and Marie Stopes International.
This new service is the result of detailed work undertaken by NHS Hampshire to redesign and integrate local sexual health services in response to identified needs and extensive public and stakeholder engagement.
Solent NHS Trust, working in partnership with bpas, will be providing a complete range of integrated sexual health services at convenient community-based locations using a Consultant-led hub and nurse-delivered spoke model. This means that most people will be able to have their sexual health needs assessed and in some cases met in one visit.
The range of services includes:
- all methods of contraception,
- STI testing & treatment,
- HIV testing & treatment,
- termination of pregnancy services,
- pregnancy testing,
- emergency contraception,
- chlamydia screening,
- psychosexual counselling (current provision will be extended across Hampshire from April 2012),
- sexual health promotion and
- vasectomy services in partnership with current GP vasectomy providers.
Outreach services and designated clinics for young people in colleges and other young people’ settings will also continue to be provided.
The new Integrated Sexual Health Service will be primarily nurse delivered, supported by onward referral to Consultants and Specialists as required.
From 16 January 2012, ‘Sexual Health: Hampshire, Portsmouth & Southampton’ will be accessible to people via a single phone number: 0300 300 2016. People will only need to remember one phone number to access any sexual health service in Hampshire, Portsmouth or Southampton (including unplanned pregnancy services).
Solent NHS Trust will be advertising clinics and opening times with a wide-spread media campaign and have created a new website for all Sexual Health Services across Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton. We would be grateful if you could please update any details you have on your website for Sexual Health Services to www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk in addition to the NHS Hampshire sexual health website www.getiton.nhs.uk.
We also ask that you amend your phone numbers for Sexual Health Services to 0300 300 2016 from the 16th January 2012.
