Somerset Wide Integrated Sexual Health SWISH
From 1 April 20016, a new service known as the Somerset Wide Integrated Sexual Health Service (SWISH) launches. Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) and Contraception and Sexual Health CASH services in Somerset will come together and offer an integrated service.
We aim to provide a ‘one stop shop’ which offers free and open-access to contraceptive and sexual health services to support healthy sexual and reproductive choices. We are committed to providing equal access of contraceptive and sexual health advice and support.
We will be running interim clinics for a few months while we get our spaces ready but our aim is to offer extended hours and a greater range of clinic locations, making it easier for people to access our services. There will be a range of services on offer including walk-in clinics, a full range of contraception, as well as emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, HIV testing and support, chlamydia screening, advice on sexual abuse and abortion services, an advice line, and online booking.
You can find current service details, including clinic locations and opening hours if you follow the link to the new SWISH website. This website will be updated as we develop our service.
