Health advice and support

Sexual health

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Lincolnshire Integrated sexual and reproductive health services (LiSH) are unable to provide their regular clinics.  

All contact with patients will be made through the Central Booking Line: 01522 309309  (8am -7.30pm Mon-Fri).

A telephone consultation will be offered and if following this LiSH needs to see the client in person, an appointment will be offered.

LiSH Clinics offer free non-judgemental, confidential services to provide:

  • contraception
  • diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections
  • HIV counselling
  • testing and treatment and advice on sexual health concerns, including psycho-sexual counselling

They may also be able to post out or arrange for collection of sexually transmitted infection test kits and/or contraception. 

A free text service is available for sexual health questions and advice (Lincolnshire residents, aged 13-19): Text 07520 649893

At the present time, patients who do attend without prior triage will not be seen to protect LiSH staff and vulnerable client groups.

If you have a need that is not urgent, please consider whether this can wait until the coronavirus outbreak is over.

General practice remains open to provide contraception, including emergency contraception, using triage and telephone consultation with face to face appointments when necessary.

Pharmacies that are commissioned to provide emergency contraception are also open.
