New sexual health service launched in west London

04 April 2017

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has welcomed the launch of a newly-commissioned public health service in west London.

Support and Advice on Sexual Health (SASH), a partnership between Metro, Naz, Marie Stopes and London Friend led by Turning Point, opened its doors on Monday 3 April.

SASH will promote good sexual health while continuing to offer accessible and responsive services to those with specific needs including HIV, specifically through closer links with HIV treatment services and additional education and employment support.

Cllr Mary Weale, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, said: “We want residents to remain healthy and safe, and this new way of delivering sexual health services makes it easier for people to access the help they need. I hope residents make full use of the services available.”

The new service will be delivered from four main hubs across west London:
• Kensington and Chelsea – Earl’s Court Health Centre, 2b Hogarth Road, SW5 0PT
• Hammersmith and Fulham – 30 Black’s Rd, Hammersmith, W6 9DT
• Westminster – 209a Harrow Road, Westminster, W2 5EH
• Westminster – 31 Wardour St, W1D 6PT
