The Health and Social Care Committee publishes the results of its online survey, commissioned to find out more about the experiences of people using sexual health services.
The survey ran during in January and was completed by 385 individuals representing a diverse range of communities – these responses have made a key contribution to the Committee's inquiry into sexual health.
Respondents were particularly concerned with the accessibility of services, but also voiced issues relating to staff expertise, behaviour, and system coordination. Some people also felt that reduced funding allocated to sexual health had had an impact on services. However, most respondents praised the quality of care and service they received.
Thank you very much to all those who shared their experiences and contributed to the inquiry. We are also grateful Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) for their analysis of the results. The results of this survey will feed into the final report on this inquiry, due for publication later this year.
