More people are accessing sexual health services, with consultations increasing by 15% between 2014 and 2018. To help manage this overall increase in demand, local authorities have been utilising technology to manage lower risk and asymptomatic patients. Free, confidential online services which are convenient for patients are increasingly being commissioned. As these services develop, more people will be able to access them.
