Dear Mr Abrams,

 

FOI ref: 2016/1087

 

Further to your email below, I can now respond to your request dated 15^th
August 2016.

 

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted within Pennine
Care NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) to locate the requested information
and I can confirm that the information requested is held by the Trust.

 

1. Does Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust provide an erectile dysfunction
clinic and can you provide the total number and addresses of all NHS
erectile dysfunction clinics within Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust? If
you do not know who should we ask?

 

Pennine Care Healthy Minds services do not run an Erectile Dysfunction
(ED) clinic.

 

2. Does Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust provide psychosexual clinics and
can you provide the total number and addresses of all NHS psychosexual
clinics within Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust? If you do not know who
should we ask?

 

(see below)

 

3. Does Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust provide counselling and sex
therapy services and can you provide the details of any NHS counselling
services and sex therapy services that treat men with erectile dysfunction
within Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust? If you do not know who should we
ask?

 

Oldham & Stockport Healthy Minds fund a psychosexual counselling post, as
part of their IAPT establishment in Healthy Minds. They do not provide
specific psychosexual or ED-specific clinics, however appropriate
referrals are directed to the counsellor.

 

Tameside and Glossop Healthy Minds does not provide psychosexual
counselling or any specific service for erectile dysfunction.  However,
they do have a presence in the sexual health clinic.  This intervention at
the sexual health clinic is provided by Step 2 clinicians (Psychological
Wellbeing Practitioners) with a focus of guided self-help for mild to
moderate anxiety and depression.  Psychosexual counselling would not be
provided within this provision, however we would - if requested - provide
input for a mild to moderate common mental health problem for this
population, if deemed appropriate.
