Thursday, May 17 saw the Young Persons Sexual Health Workshop take place at the Tooting Hub, Beechcroft Road, Tooting. With the aim of informing young people, 14 – 18, about the sexual health services available in the Wandsworth borough.
Spectra, joined Healthwatch Wandsworth and commissioners from Wandsworth Borough Council’s Sexual Health Commissioning Office, along with representatives from CLCH Trust and METRO Charity, to talk to a room full of young people from around the local area.
Healthwatch Wandsworth represent the views of people who use local services on Wandsworth’s Health and Wellbeing Board and report any concerns about the quality of health care to Healthwatch England, who will then recommend that the Care Quality Commission take action if necessary.
Getting feedback from people at the event would be used to inform stakeholders of how sexual health services in Wandsworth are viewed.
The workshop covered a number of subjects, including:
- What people know about the current services in the borough
- Presentation on STIs and Consent issues
- Feedback on the experiences of service users accessing current sexual health services
- What should services be like
- How should information on the services be delivered
- Pizza and goody bags
The afternoon was a lively and well-received debate and information sharing session, and we’d like to thank everyone who attended.
