      Integrated Sexual Health Service

      The current Integrated Sexual Health Service contract has been awarded to national Charity Brook Young People from April 2021.

      It means sexual health services will continue to be provided to residents after Blackburn with Darwen Council re-tendered the service which has been provided by Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust since 2011.

      For Integrated Sexual Health Services from April 1, 2021, call 01254 268 700.

      Many people experience some difficulty in their sexual lives at some point. Some of these improve by themselves without help, others require more assistance.  We are here to help individuals and couples address problems with sexual functioning as well as concerns about sexuality, sexual orientation and lifestyle.

      What we do

      SHARE, is a confidential specialist service. Referrals are accepted from a variety of services including GPs, Nurses, Contraceptive Services, GUM Services, Mental Health Services and Social Care to name a few.

      If you feel unable to approach a professional and discuss being referred into the service please contact us directly on 07538 475987 or 01254 283333 or email us SHARE@lancashirecare.nhs.uk and we will do everything we can to assist.

      The SHARE team consists of four therapists, a trainee therapist and a dedicated service administrator. All of the therapists have completed a postgraduate course in the assessment and treatment of sex and relationship problems.  This is recognised by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). We therefore abide by the COSRT code of ethics
