Health and Social Care Committee

Sexual health inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions was Monday 1 October 2018. If you would like to send a submission please contact Committee staff at hsccom@parliament.uk.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee seeks evidence on sexual health, including: 

  • Recent trends
  • Prevention
  • The commissioning and delivery of sexual health services, including contraception services. This includes:
    • Demand
    • Access
    • Funding
    • Standards
    • Co-commissioned services, e.g. HIV, PrEP, cervical screening, vaccinations, drugs and alcohol (chemsex)
    • Decommissioning of non-core services
    • Governance
  • Workforce issues
  • Action at national and local level to improve sexual health and sexual health services – the role of Government, NHS England, Public Health England and local authorities

The impact of STIs remains greatest in young heterosexuals 15 to 24 years; black ethnic minorities; and gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM), so the inquiry would particularly welcome evidence on the issues facing these specific groups of the population. We would also welcome submissions on sexual health services for over-50s.
