Changes to Sexual Health Services from 1 April 2014
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust is now providing integrated sexual health services across Oxfordshire.
This brings together services, Genitourinary Medicine (sexually transmitted infections) and Family Planning (contraceptive), that were previously delivered by separate organisations, into a new improved service that will make it easier for all people to access the range of care that they need.
The family planning service at the Alec Turnbull clinic, previously provided by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, is being temporarily offered from the Churchill Hospital until a suitable new location in East Oxford can be found. Oxford Health are reviewing their property portfolio and can no longer offer the space for this clinic to be housed in. The search to find an alternative location in the community as quickly as possible continues and staff and patients will be kept informed.
Plans for the new integrated service include providing clinics and services at the Churchill Hospital and in the following locations: Banbury, East Oxford, Didcot, Witney, Bicester, Abingdon, Kidlington and Wantage.
