This year’s Sexual Health Week is focusing on relationships, sex and disability and visitors to Walsall Manor Hospital today can talk to staff about the services on offer in the borough to ensure their wellbeing and support them to enjoy healthy relationships.
Staff from Walsall integrated Sexual Health (WiSH) have got an information stand in the main atrium of the hospital this morning and are happy to chat to people of all ages.
Tanya Grainger, Senior Sister in sexual health, said: “Inclusion is the theme of this year’s week-long focus and we pride ourselves on the services we offer for all communities in Walsall. We’re happy to help bust the myth that disabled people are not sexually active or at risk of sexually transmitted infections and want to showcase the support that is available.
“We work hard to make our services as accessible as possible – this includes outreach work with casual sex workers and vulnerable service users. Our motivation is to empower people to enjoy happy and healthy relationships while keeping themselves safe. Please pop by our stand for a warm welcome and information on the range of support on offer which includes home testing kits.”
