G_CS_64 SOP for School Nurse Sexual Health Offer to Young People

The School Nurse sexual health offer combines delivery of a comprehensive health promotion package on sexual health to young people aged 13-19 in conjunction with provision of support, diagnosis and treatment via “Clinic in a Box”.

 

 

 

This includes:

 

  • Delivery of information on sexual health, sexually transmitted infections and contraception via Personal Health and Social Education (PHSE) sessions in collaboration with the school PHSE coordinator.
  • Chlamydia screening sessions in secondary schools or other targeted settings.
  • Delivery of support, diagnosis and treatment via “clinic in a box” which is a nurse-led mobile sexual health service delivered within confidential, targeted settings that are accessible to a range of young people aged 13-19 years old. This includes young people aged 13-19 attending secondary school, and those aged 14-16 who are in full-time education as part of Solutions 4. Clinic in a Box focuses on health education and promotion through sexual health awareness, delivery of the C Card and pregnancy testing scheme, emergency contraception, screening for Chlamydia and issues surrounding consent and sexual risk taking behaviours.  This will be a discreet and confidential service (subject to the normal safeguarding risk parameters) that can be offered in a variety of settings including schools and wellbeing clinics.
