Support for sexual and reproductive health
One of the mandated public health services the council is responsible for commissioning is sexual and reproductive health services, this includes the provision of access to testing for sexually transmitted disease and HIV testing, but doesn’t include infertility treatment or HIV treatment and care.
The council commissioned sexual and reproductive health services from Umbrella, which is a partnership of organisations providing access to ‘at home testing’, drop in clinics and access to testing and treatment through a network of over 200 GPs and pharmacies across the city.
The Umbrella service also includes specific targeted services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans individuals, black and minority ethnic individuals and young people.
You can also find more information about sexual and reproductive health through these national websites:
