Results updated 14 Sep 2021

Thank you to people who took part in the consultation. The Lead Member for Adult Social Care & Health will consider our recommendations, the consultation results and the Equality Impact Assessment on 21 September. You can read the papers for the meeting on our website.


Everyone in East Sussex should have easy access to specialist sexual health services that meet their needs. Do you think our updated service model will help achieve that aim? 

Tell us what you think 

We want to know what you think about our service model and whether it will allow everyone to get the support they need. We particularly want to hear from everyone who has used the service or will do in future. We are also keen to hear from people who would struggle to access phone and online services.

You can fill in the survey online or on paper, but you can also send us a letter or email – whatever works for you. The consultation closes on 22 July.
