Condom availability 'improved in Glasgow'

Sexual health is to be tackled by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde by increasing the amount of condoms that are being distributed.

The move, which is designed to reduce the number of sexually transmitted infections being transmitted, will see the availability of the prophylactic improved, the Ayshire Post reports.

In order to qualify for the scheme individuals have to either live or work in the health board area.

The body hopes the improvements to the system - which means individuals no longer have to register - will have a direct link on its efficacy.

Previously those who wanted to get the device could go to one of around 70 GP surgeries, community centres, high street pharmacies or colleges.

Mike Brooke, marketing manager at Glasgow-based Freight - the company behind the advertising of the initiative - told the Drum: "At the heart of successful public sexual health advertising are clear, non-judgemental and unambiguous messages."
