"tried to book an appointment at sexual health clinic"

About: NHS Cumbria CCG

(as a friend),

tried calling the local clinic number - kentwood. Got an out of date (8 months old) answerphone message telling me not to leave a message and to call another number. Called that number - birchwood - but got another out of date (only 2 months old this time) answerphone message also saying not to leave a number.

tried calling the county 0845 number for sexual health services but they couldn't give me any information that I didn't already have.

sexual health problems are difficult enough to get a man to get treatment for, but this is a ridiculous extra hurdle if you can't actually make an appointment.
