Sexual health, the process: primary care, explores sexual health from two main perspectives. The first is sexual health within the structures of primary care, for example, primary health care teams. The second is from the primary, or first presenting, care needs of the client, irrespective of which professional service they avail themselves of. For many people the concepts of sexual health are still in their infancy, and is frequently reduced either to contraceptive advice such as family planning, cervical screening campaigns, or to the avoidance of sexually transmitted infections. This chapter attempts to widen this view, first by exploring the ways in which the primary health care team and allied services can address the issues, and secondly by examining the sexual-health care responsibilities of other health and social care professionals. Such responsibilities emanate from the client's needs.
