Professionals information

The education & health promotion team

The sexual health promotion team have a wealth of experience supporting staff working with young and vulnerable people.  We help plan relationship & sexual health education curriculum for schools and colleges.  We provide staff training on topics relating to relationships and sexual heath to help fellow professionals cascade key messages with confidence. 

We can negotiate educational sessions directly to some particularly vulnerable people and students on occasion; however we don’t routinely offer classroom delivery to pupils.

The C-card scheme

The C-card scheme provides an opportunity for young people to get free condoms from trained staff.  This is to help young people keep safe and reduce teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

Young people (up to and including 19 years of age) meet with a trained worker who discusses their relationship and when appropriate gives condoms. 

All staff have experience of working with young people and are trained before giving condoms. Everything remains confidential, unless (on rare occasions) someone is at significant harm or risk, then safeguarding guidelines will be followed.

Outreach nurse service

WiSH sexual health nurses work with young people who cannot or are unable to access main stream sexual health services. There are six outreach nurses who work across Worcestershire. The specialist sexual health nurses can see young people in schools, homes, community settings or any appropriate venue to meet the needs of a young person. Referrals are accepted from professionals (School health nurses, teachers, midwives, police, CSE team etc…). Sexual health nurses offer one to one support for young people to offer information and guidance regarding contraception, sexually transmitted infections and safer sex. 

Referral criteria:

The service aims to improve access to nurse led level 1 and 2 sexual-health care. The service will be offered to high risk and vulnerable populations as well as those that are not able to access services due to learning, mental and physical disabilities. Services should be provided where clinically appropriate, and suitable alternative provision made otherwise.
