Sexual health services review

Closes 12 Mar 2023

Opened 12 Jan 2023

Overview

Leicester City Council needs to procure the next sexual health services contract to begin on 1 April 2024. The current sexual health contract is jointly commissioned by Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council, and ends on 31 March 2024. The next contract will be commissioned solely by Leicester City Council, with Leicestershire and Rutland undertaking a separate process.

We would like to hear your views on potential changes to the services and how they are delivered, so we can ensure they meet the needs of the people who use them.

This consultation is about ‘integrated sexual health services’ in Leicester. This includes both contraception and prevention, testing, and treatment for sexually transmitted infections.

These services can be used by anyone, regardless of where they live. However, it should be noted that we are only referring to sexual health services that are available in the city of Leicester.

This consultation does not refer to the HIV treatment and care services that are provided by University Hospitals of Leicester.

This consultation is open to people who access sexual health services, members of the public, staff and partner organisations.

Topics covered by this consultation include:

  • Online appointment bookings
  • Face to face services
  • Vending machines
  • Sexually transmitted infection test kits
  • Phone consultations / advice
  • Clinics
  • Contraception
  • Coils and implants
  • Additional services and community wellbeing champions

You can disregard any questions that are not relevant to you.

Any answers or comments that relate to Leicestershire and Rutland services will be anonymised and passed on to the respective county authorities for their attention.

If you wish to take Leicestershire County Council's consultation survey it is online until 12 March 2023.
