Sex workers face many barriers when accessing healthcare, starting with the generalising and stereotyping of those selling sex. Healthcare staff can possess both conscious and unconscious bias and make moral judgements about the sex industry and sex workers, which can negatively impact their ability to deliver quality healthcare that meets the needs of this patient group. It is illegal for more than one individual to sell sex from any indoor location atone time. This means that sex workers must choose between working alone and risk the increased vulnerability that this brings, or face criminalisation for working together. As such, sex workers fear opening up about their work to healthcare professionals for fear of criminalisation.

The routes taken by those that enter commercial sex work are diverse,with the majority entering the industry due to economic necessity. Some operate with high levels of autonomy and will not experience issues when trying to exist the industry. In contrast there are those who turn to sex work to fund drug or other addictions, or those who are trafficked for the purposes of profiting of sexual exploitation and have little autonomy or control over when to exist the industry.

@WeNurses In my journey I originally always considered ‘sex-worker’ to mean someone who physically had sex with people for money. This has evolved over my years researching and working with sex workers. #wenurses

@WeNurses To me, a sex worker is someone who receives money or goods for sexual services, including someone who is employed within the sex industry #WeNurses
@WeNurses
28 March 2019 20:07

@GilmoreJNurse
28 March 2019 20:09
@AgencyNurse I think I’m now at the stage where I think of ‘sex-work’ as any work related to consensual provision of sexual services whether physical or not to others #wenurses

I was reflecting on this today & my first thoughts were "i have never come across a sex worker in my time as a nurse" & then i thought some more ... I have had a varied career including surgical & medical wards & some time in a sexual health clinic .... 1/2 #WeNurses

Not all sex work contains what many would consider ‘sex’. However it provides sexual gratification for others, thinking of people I’ve met in the BDSM community who provide punishment for a few #wenurses https://twitter.com/cahill_lou/status/1111359519282659330

@WeNurses I often work with sex workers in both the acute hospital setting and in offender healthcare. As HCP we should never assume anything about others, it’s always worth having an open conversation with our patients, no judgments, just a safe environment to be themselves. #WeNurses

@learnhospice @bouncyjohn22 @AgencyNurse ???? one of the biggest barrier to sex worker safety is the fact that as a society we struggle to get off our moral horses and accept this is some people’s work. This harms sex workers and their health. #WeNurses

@WeNurses What we often see in offender healthcare is that sex workers do not utilities community health care services, for some their time in prison is the only connection to health advice and services. We as a profession need to work on promoting safe sexual activity for all. #weNurses

I'd like to change this question to the "right care" ... as we may not know they are sex workers ... so IMHO the biggest barrier is developing a relationship with them where they feel comfortable enough to disclose this #WeNurses https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1111362346927173633

@WeNurses Ignorance is a huge factor. You need to know about the population you’re serving to meet their needs - doesn’t help that individual misconceptions/prejudices/biases will get in the way! And nurses aren’t great when it comes to talking about sex, never mind sex work #WeNurses

@WeNurses Sex workers face criminalization under current laws, which makes them very fearful to disclose. If a sex worker works alone they are not breaking the law. If two share a flat for safety they become brothel runners and pumps under the law and are prosecuted. #WeNurses

We raise this because these are organizations you could sign post sex workers too or could yourself approach for guidance and advice if you need it. #WeNurses https://twitter.com/bouncyjohn22/status/1111369927468945421

I think we should remember that some sex workers, work to improve the well-being of others by providing those who find it difficult/don’t want to form relationships or get sexual gratification by other means #wenurses https://twitter.com/wenurses/status/1111369889216950272

@WeNurses Most likely to attend via A&E perhaps some training there & posters to state it’s safe to disclose you are a sex worker @Nurse_Green @royal_lgbt (Alice please note thread ?? potential teaching session) #WeNurses

@WeNurses Great to see some evidence base posted on this Twitter chat, will definitely be reading more into the laws around sex workers, to enable me to support my patients in the future. #Wenurses

@WeNurses I think this has shown me that there is a need to ask direct questions regarding sex work if by not asking it might impact on the care or support they need. Failing to ask might mean that we fail them.. particularly if their presentation was a call for help #WeNurses

@CharlotteNHSRN @WeNurses On the #WeNurses web page for tonight we’ve posted a bunch of links to great reports around the law and it’s impact on health. There’s a really good 2018 one from @LSHTM. #WeNurses

@WeNurses We need to consider the needs of our patients to access the services of sex workers. If we #DecrimNow & destigmatise I think patients especially disabled/people not otherwise able to achieve their desires will be more open. We should be prepared for those conversations #WeNurses

@Lizbaker925 @Jess_STN @WeNurses It’s not good reason. It’s moral judgement. The opinion of what a woman should do with her body written in a newspaper doesn’t really stack against the evidence from @WHO @UNAIDS @amnesty @TheLancet @LSHTM and many more. #WeNurses
