Sexual health guidance for local authorities

The Department of Health has published sexual health guidance for local authority public health teams.

Commissioning Sexual Health Services and Interventions: Best Practice Guidance for Local Authorities is designed to help local authorities to commission high quality sexual health services for their local area.

From 1 April 2013, local authorities will be responsible for commissioning most sexual health interventions and services as part of their wider public health responsibilities, with costs met from their allocated public health grant.
