Details

The purpose of the HPV MSM pilot is to evaluate whether it is operationally possible and cost effective to deliver such a programme through GUM and HIV clinics. PHE is monitoring the delivery of the vaccine through a small number of invited clinics. At present, there is no national HPV vaccine programme for MSM, and so the vaccine is not available outside of the pilot clinics.

The results of the pilot will inform the potential roll out of a national programme that will benefit the whole MSM population. It is important that the pilot outcome is accurate and reliable. PHE is not actively promoting vaccination during the pilot in order to avoid increasing clinic attendances and associated costs. These could negatively impact on the evaluation of the pilot, and affect the decision to roll out a future national programme.

At this time, PHE therefore encourages patients to continue attending GUM and HIV clinics where they normally receive care.

The detailed guidance and slide set are aimed at healthcare professionals involved in the HPV for MSM pilot. The pilots are taking place in selected GUM and HIV clinics in England from 2016.

The clinical and operational guidance document includes information on:

  • aims and objectives of the pilot
  • eligibility
  • administration, dosage and vaccination schedule
  • vaccine supply and stock management
  • Patient Specific Directions (PSDs)
  • vaccine coverage data collection
  • funding arrangements
  • communications and training resources
  • patient questionnaire

The guidance for health professionals document includes information on:

  • background to the pilot
  • vaccine eligibility
  • vaccine administration
  • programme delivery

The slideset provides information on:

  • background to the supply of the vaccine
  • eligibility for the vaccine
  • how to reconstitute the vaccine
  • how to administer the vaccine

The leaflet and record card are for MSM, up to and including 45 years of age, who are offered the HPV vaccine as part of the pilot programme.

The poster, leaflet and record card are available to order from the DH health and social care orderline.
