A partnership of 31 London local authorities working with the NHS
The London Sexual Health Programme (LSHP) is a partnership of 31 London local authorities working with the NHS to make sure that access to sexual health services is improved at a time when public health funding to local councils has been reduced.
As a result of changes introduced by the LSHP, people can order free, easy-to-use STI home testing kits to be posted to their homes through the Sexual Health London service.
Most of London’s more than 60 sexual health clinics now also offer contraception, testing and treatment services in one place, after the LSHP supported councils to bring commissioning for these services together.
These changes mean that it’s now more convenient than ever for people in the capital to get tested regularly and monitor their sexual health.
