I have been calling every 5 minutes for the past 5 hours, and still nobody has answered the phone, so that I may book a check up. This is not the first time this has happened either... Surely access to sexual health services should be better than this? For some people, it is a big thing to pick up the phone, book an appointment and get tested, but with this amount of difficulty, I imagine many people will just give up and hope for the best! This is hardly going to improve the sexual health of the community, and I imagine, if anything, this will lead to a greater prevalence of ill health and a greater workload for the service. Surely more staff should be employed, so that someone is actually free to pick up the phone?
