The provision of Sexual Health Services.

Local authorities are mandated by the Local Authorities (Public Health Functions and Entry to Premises by Local Healthwatch Representatives) Regulations 2013 to commission comprehensive open access sexual health services, including free STI testing and treatment, notification of sexual partners of infected persons and advice on, and reasonable access to, a broad range of contraception; and advice on preventing unplanned pregnancy. In Surrey, this is integrated alongside HIV services in a partnership with NHS England. This ensures that Surrey residents are able to achieve the best outcomes possible irrespective of need.



Following the conclusion of the tender process, it was agreed that the contracts will be awarded to Central and NW London NHS Foundation Trust (winning bidder) and will commence on 1 October 2022.


Reasons for the decision:

Sexual Health & HIV services are statutory in nature and Local Authorities are required to provide them as part of their Public Health responsibilities.
