Start date 24 March 2016
End date 11 April 2016

What is this about?

We are holding focus groups in March and early April to hear from residents in Camden and Islington about what they would like from services in London which provide contraception as well as tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. This information will be used in deciding how best to deliver these services in the future.

What does the focus group involve?

You will not be asked to speak about your own experience of using sexual health services but asked for your thoughts and ideas on the best way to deliver these services.

Questions will include:

  • What and where are the best places to deliver these services?
  • How can we make sure that services are available to people who want to use them and are easy to use?

We are holding a number of different workshops and you will be able to choose the one that you feel most comfortable with, including men-only and women-only groups. We are particularly interested in hearing from the following groups: Young people, gay men, people living with HIV, and Black and Asian Minority Ethnic groups - including Bangladeshi women, Black British and Black Caribbean men and women, and African men and women living with HIV.

The focus groups will last up to an hour and will be held in central venues in Camden and Islington.

Everything that you say will be completely confidential.

Who can take part?

Anyone over the age of 16 who lives in Camden or Islington. You do not have to have used sexual health services before to take part.

You will receive a £20 high street shopping voucher as a thank you for taking part.
