Residents quizzed about sexual health services in Derbyshire

Residents are to be asked for their views about sexual health services as part of a Derbyshire County Council review.

The council wants to make sure current services meet local people’s needs and will also use feedback to help plan future provision.

Services currently on offer are:

* Contraception services including emergency contraception

* Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

* Sexual health promotion, information and advice and HIV prevention

Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Dave Allen said: “We want to make sure the services currently offered are what Derbyshire people need and will use the comments we receive to help us shape future plans.

“People do not need to have used any of the services to take part in this consultation. We’re keen to hear different views from as many people as possible.”

The consultation will run between Wednesday, January 1 and Friday, January 31.
