York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is commissioned by North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council to deliver an integrated sexual health service across North Yorkshire and York. The service is provided under the recognised name “YorSexualHealth.”
Benefits of the new service include improved access to services and better training and support to professionals. We are working in partnership with GPs and Pharmacies to maximise access and choice for people. We are also working with Yorkshire MESMAC to provide Community Outreach Services as part of the new integrated service.
We are commissioned to provide a free, confidential sexual health service across North Yorkshire and York. This is delivered by two separate contracts which may mean there are some differences in the services we deliver. An example of this is within the city of York we are not commissioned to deliver repeat contraception (except currently for those who are 19 years old and under).
In North Yorkshire we are no longer able to supply repeat pills or patches for those aged 20 and over.
We can insert, exchange and remove implants and contraceptive coils.
We offer training and support in addition to clinical services.
Our Professionals pages of the website are currently under development If you have any queries regarding the new YorSexualHealth service please email email@example.com
