Delivering health ambitions better for less: commissioning for sexual health

This document states that commissioning effective sexual health services can significantly reduce physical and emotional ill health whilst providing over £16m of regional cost savings to the NHS. This document includes recommendations for commissioners which will help improve quality and reduce cost including: health professionals having the knowledge and skills to offer women seeking contraception an informed choice and access to long-acting reversible methods; prevention and early diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections including HIV; and effective measures to reduce rates of repeat abortions.
