Trust to provide sexual health services for local community in Sutton

01 April 2016

Chelsea and Westminster’s sexual health services are expanding and will soon be provided to people living and working in Sutton.

Chelsea and Westminster’s sexual health services are expanding and will soon be provided to people living and working in Sutton. Initially the service will offer GU (genito-urinary) medicine for patients diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections and HIV, screening for chlamydia and community contraception.

The Trust has developed a ‘hub and spoke’ model of service delivery to help integrate services across the London Borough of Sutton, in order to provide a more seamless service for local people.  This will include using cutting edge technology developed at 56 Dean Street and Dean Street Express to offer a more streamlined service and reduce patient waiting times for results.

Dr David Asboe Clinical Director HIV Medicine, Sexual Health, Dermatology at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said: “We are very excited to be joining forces with the existing teams in Sutton to deliver high quality sexual health and contraception services over the upcoming years. The new arrangements offer a wonderful opportunity to further innovate services so that they meet the changing needs of Sutton residents.” 

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust plans to bring a new centrally located clinic to be based at the heart of the community in Sutton to open in 2016.
