Sexual Safety Collaborative Learning Sets

The Sexual Safety Collaborative (SSC) launched on 21 October 2019. Wards on the collaborative will participate in a series of learning sets throughout the programme. These events allow the wards to share what they are testing and give them the opportunity to network.
