Get Involved

We want you involved with our work. We need to know what matters to you or your community about sexual health.

Developing our guidelines with your help

The BASHH Clinical Effectiveness Group (CEG) develops national guidelines for the management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and related conditions. The purpose of these guidelines is to make clear recommendations for health care practitioners (e.g. doctors and nurses) looking after patients with sexual health concerns and problems.

In order to make sure that the guidelines we produce focus strongly on the patient, we aim to have patient members working in all of our guideline groups.

How do I get involved?

Helping us to develop our patient information leaflets

BASHH produce a number of leaflets, which aim to provide patients with up to date and evidence-based information about sexually transmitted infections. Our public panel reviews all patient-focused information to make sure that it understandable and relevant.
