Sexual health feels the financial pinch

Sheffield’s sexual health services face losing £927,000 in council funding next year.

Funds to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are being cut back further, from 11% to 15%, because of the council’s “significant financial challenge”.

A council report says: “We are confident services for those that most need our help and support will be prioritised, but there may be an impact on frontline service delivery.”

Sexual health services are being redesigned to target particular districts.
