“Every little thing gonna be all right!” was the message ringing out from Joyful Noise, a high-spirited choir of people living with HIV, at the launch this week of new sexual health services in Hammersmith & Fulham.
The services include advice on staying safe from sexually transmitted infections, access to contraception to avoid unwanted pregnancies, support for people living with HIV, and free sexual health screening.
“At a time when sexual health services are being cut elsewhere, we've been working with residents to make those in our borough even better,” said Cllr Ben Coleman, H&F Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care. “We're determined that everyone should have access to the information and support they need.”
The new services are being provided by Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) and the Support and Advice on Sexual Health (SASH) partnership.
For screening and contraceptives, visit CNWL at Crowther Market, 282 North End Road, Fulham SW6 1NH.
