Integrated Sexual Health Services

There is a Sexual Health Safeguarding Nurse within the iSH service who works with children, young people and adults who are deemed to be at significant risk of sexual exploitation. She runs a Safe Team Vulnerability Clinic in iSH in Hereford and also sees people who are either unable, or highly anxious about accessing routine sexual health clinics and therefore require a targeted and specific service from another venue. Any individual, agency or professional in contact with vulnerable young people and adults at significant risk of sexual exploitation can refer to the clinic.

iSH also receive referrals to the Health Promotion Specialist for Sexual Health and Healthy Relationships sessions, ideally provided in a group setting, and with some provision for 1:1 education.
