Hampshire Sexual Health Stakeholder Event 7 March 2013

Dear Colleague

Please find your invitation to the next Hampshire Sexual Health Stakeholder Event.

It is now just over 3 years since we developed our first Hampshire-wide Sexual Health & HIV Strategy and started our journey to redesign local sexual health services in response to the needs identified in the Hampshire Sexual Health Needs Assessment 2009.

Significant progress has been made since then but there is more still to be done and 2013 will see significant changes in sexual health commissioning arrangements as well as a new national sexual health policy.

This event aims to continue to involve local stakeholders in planning to improve sexual health in Hampshire by:

  • Providing an overview of the new national policy for sexual health
  • Outlining the new commissioning arrangements for sexual health and outcome indicators
  • Sharing current information on the sexual health of people in Hampshire and the progress that has been made to date
  • Identifying what still needs to be done to improve sexual health in Hampshire & the priorities

The event takes place on Thursday the 7th March 2013 from 9am to 12.30pm in Ashburton Hall, Elizabeth II Court, Winchester and is aimed at practitioners, managers and commissioners of local sexual health and HIV services and others involved in sexual health services.

Please note that lunch will not be provided but there is a café and a restaurant next to the hall and you are welcome to bring your own lunch.

If you would like to attend please complete the form below and RSVP by Monday the 25th February 2013 to abbie.twaits@hampshire.nhs.uk

I hope you will be able to join us.

Sexual Health Services are changing

From Monday 16 January 2012, specialist Sexual Health Services in Hampshire are changing and can be accessed via a single point of access telephone number: 0300 300 2016

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.

If you would like to find out more about the new sexual health services please read the attached letter from Rob Carroll, Sexual Health Lead for NHS Hampshire New Level 3 Sexual Health Service Notification Letter 09.01.12

All the logos for the new sexual health service on this site will provide a link through to www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk so click on the logo to access the new website

 

 

Hampshire Sexual Health Strategy

NHS Hampshire is working with key partners and services across Hampshire to improve the sexual health of the population and to reduce inequalities in sexual health.

Sexual Health is an important part of most people’s lives and the consequences of poor sexual health can be serious. Significant progress has already been made to improve sexual health in Hampshire but more still needs to be done.

In March 2009 NHS Hampshire invited the Department of Health’s National Support Team for Sexual Health to review our progress and plans and to make recommendations for future improvements. A copy of the National Support Team’s Assessment Report is available to download here:

Following this report NHS Hampshire commissioned Options UK to undertake a comprehensive sexual health needs assessment across Hampshire in order to identify gaps and needs. A copy of the Hampshire Comprehensive Sexual Health Needs Assessment is available to download here:

Sexual Health Needs Assessment Report 2009

A stakeholder conference was held on the 24th September 2009 to review the key findings of the needs assessment and to explore how current services could be improved in order to improve the sexual health of the population. A copy of the conference report is available to download here:

Work is now being taken forward by the Hampshire Sexual Health Strategy Group to develop a new Sexual Health Strategy and Action Plan and to design a new model of integrated sexual health service provision across Hampshire.

In 2010 a Sexual Health Needs Assessment with Looked After Young People was undertaken in order to better understand needs of this group of young people.  A copy of the report is available to download here:
