Sexual health services for SEND

You can visit a sexual health clinic or call the sexual health advice line, whether you are having sex or thinking of having sex with someone.

If you have any questions about your sexual health, you can visit our sexual health pages where you can also make an appointment to see the health professional. Before booking your appointment,  if you have a learning disability, we recommend you ask for the 'Apple Tree Service'.

The Apple Tree service

The Apple Tree service is there to make sure the adjustments you need are there for you when you attend your appointment.

By asking for the Apple Tree service when you call, the health professional knows you need an appointment with additional time, this is called a double appointment. The additional time can be used to help you fill in forms, provide you with easy read leaflets and answer any questions you may have about the appointment.
