Why the changes?

The three London Boroughs of Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth have jointly re-commissioned their sexual health services in line with a new approach happening across London.

We have been awarded the contract to provide services across the three boroughs. The current Wandsworth and Richmond services and staff will transfer to us on 1 October 2017. We already run the services in Merton.

There will be location changes in Wandsworth and Richmond on the 1 October, but the testing, treatment and advice will remain the same to start with. Over the next 6 months we will be implementing the changes to meet the new model which has been commissioned. This will be aligned to the development of a London-wide online service offering people advice and the ability to order home testing kits which for many will remove the need to come to a sexual health clinic.

The London Sexual Health Transformation Programme

The London Sexual Health Programme is a unique collaboration of 29 London Boroughs looking to transform the way sexual health services are organised and provided.  This will make service better for patients, better for providers and better for the public as a whole.

The vision is for a sexual health service that provides the best service possible forpatients, delivers the best outcomes and makes the very best of our resources. The front door into services will be web based, a single platform providing patients with information about sexual health, on line triage, signposting to the most appropriate service for their needs and the ability to order self-sampling tests.

Questions

Are services for people with HIV changing?

No, the specialist outpatient and inpatient care for patients with HIV is commissioned by NHS England and is not part of the services moving to CLCH. This specialist service will continue to be run by St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Details of the service are available at https://www.stgeorges.nhs.uk/service/sexual-health/

However, all testing for HIV, as well as access to HIV post sexual exposure treatment (PEP), will transfer to CLCH as part of the integrated sexual health services.

Why are services moving from their current sites in Wandsworth and Richmond?

The Courtyard Clinic is owned by St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and they have plans to redevelop the space for other hospital services. As the new provider of sexual health services in Wandsworth and Richmond we will be using new locations. 

 

 

If you have any questions about the sexual health services to be provided by CLCH across Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth you can email swlsexhealth@clch.nhs.uk

Please keep using the current sexual health services as normal until 30 September.
