Merton Council


Sexual Health Strategy

Description: 

The London Borough of Merton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS), working alongside NHS England, are responsible for commissioning sexual health services in Merton. These services include: contraception; testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; information & advice; relationships and sex education in schools; and HIV prevention services.

The two organisations work with a range of stakeholders to ensure these services are delivered effectively. These include GP surgeries, pharmacies, NHS hospital trusts, community health organisations, schools and further education colleges.   

The London Borough of Merton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Group are currently developing a joint 5 year sexual health strategy. This strategy aims to set out how the two organisations will ensure everyone in Merton has good access to sexual health services and are supported to be healthy.

To inform the development of this strategy we are seeking feedback on our proposed vision, priorities and actions. We also wish to know a little bit more about the knowledge and experience of sexual health services of those who work, live, are educated in or looked after by the London Borough of Merton.
