These include increases in both the number of people attending sexual health services and the number of tests for sexually transmitted infections.

star this property answer text <p>The total number of those attending sexual health services, including consultations via e-Sexual Health Services in England increased by 7% between 2017 and 2018 (from 3,337,677 to 3,561,548), continuing the increasing trend over the past five years. Early detection and prompt treatment is vital to control transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).</p><p>We are concerned to see the increase in STIs which highlights the importance of people practicing safe sex by using condoms. Local councils are increasingly offering a range of options including online testing to improve choice and convenience, with almost a fifth of chlamydia tests now accessed online and there are many schemes that offer free condoms to young people, gay men and other higher risk groups.</p> more like this
