A mobile clinic will be touring Lincolnshire to raise awareness of safe sex in support of this year’s Sexual Health Week from September 11-17.
Staff from Lincolnshire Integrated Sexual Health Service (LISH) will be supporting a call by charity The Family Planning Association (FPA), who have themed this year’s campaign on promoting more open and frank discussions about safe sex and consent.
LISH, which is run by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, provides confidential and non-judgemental advice, testing and treatment for all aspects of sexual health, including contraception.
Dates of events:
- September 11 – Grantham Hospital (A&E)
- September 12 – County Hospital, Louth (Urgent Care Centre)
- September 12 – Lincoln College
- September 13 – Stamford College and Boston College
- September 13 – Bourne Health Clinic
- September 14 – Gainsborough College
- September 15 – John Coupland Hospital, Gainsborough (Minor Injuries Unit)
- September 15/16 – Butlins, Skegness
Along the mobile community clinic, staff from the Terrence Higgins Trust will be hosting information stands at colleges across the county throughout the week.
Heidi Shooter, advanced sexual health practitioner for LISH, said: “We are looking forward to getting out into the community, talking to the public and answering any questions they may have on the subject of safe sex, porn and the differences between fantasy and reality.
“Our staff will be joined by colleagues from the Terrence Higgins Trust to talk through any worries or concerns, as well as providing C-Card and sexual health advice.”
