To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to NHS England’s document, Investment and evolution: A five-year framework for GP contract reform to implement the NHS Long Term Plan, published on 31 January 2019, what plans his Department has to ensure the integration of (a) sexual and reproductive health services and (b) contraception provision within the new Primary Care Networks.

An error has been identified in the written answer given on 19 March 2019.
The correct answer should have been:

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are collaborations between general practitioner (GP) practices and a range of other local providers, typically serving a population of between 30,000 and 50,000. The Network Contract Direct Enhanced Service payment for PCNs is in final development and will be published in due course.

It is expected that PCNs should engage with local authorities as a key local partner in the delivery of integrated health and care services in order to support the objectives in the NHS Long Term Plan.

From April October 2019, contraception services will no longer be an Additional Service under the Regulations governing the General Medical Services contract but will become part of Essential Services for GP contractors.
