Public Health England Bulletin - focus on HIV service commissioning
Posted on: March 3 2014, 12:51 pm

The Department of Health (DH) has issued a range of guidance and other supporting documentation over
the last year to support commissioning of sexual health and HIV services following transition. However,
there is a recognition that situations continue to arise where further clarity about how to operate under the
new arrangements is required. This bulletin is intended to address these issues in a timely manner.
 
This is the third monthly bulletin. The series will focus on ‘live’ issues and will provide further guidance and
suggestions for solutions that can be used at local levels.
 
The bulletin is intended to address queries from all those responsible for commissioning sexual health and
HIV services (that is, contraception and reproductive health services, GUM services, HIV testing or treatment
services and abortion services), whether they are local authorities (LAs), NHS England and Clinical
Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The bulletin is also intended to provide information for provider bodies.
Public Health England (PHE) will work with DH, NHS England, the Local Government Association (LGA), the
Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) and the English HIV and Sexual Health Commissioners Group
to provide timely responses.
 
This bulletin will not be a source of new formal guidance, but will help with the interpretation of existing
policy and guidance. Where issues are raised that require a policy response they will be raised with the DH
policy team.
