Be Sex Savvy and FLY-BYE This Summer

The holiday season is well underway and many people will be visiting destinations that offer sun, sand and sea.

Although holidays are a time to unwind, it is still important to take care of your sexual health, as the combination of sun and alcohol can often lead people into risky situations.

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) Sexual Health Service holds countywide clinics offering a range of appointments, including FLY-BYE.

Susan Collins, Sexual Health Nurse Consultant for LCHS, said: "Our FLY-BYE clinics offer people peace of mind by getting a sexual health check-up if they are worried or concerned. As long as you are sixteen or over and don't have symptoms, it is a great way of reassuring people pre and post-holiday. Appointments only last around fifteen minutes and are completely confidential.

"If you have been on holiday and taken risks - don't panic. Call our Sexual Health central booking line as soon as you can, to talk it over with someone so that any tests and/or treatment can be done at the optimum time."

To book an appointment, including FLY-BYE, call the central booking line on: 01522 539145 . Lines are open 8.30am-6.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.
