Sexual health: clinical governance

Details

The public health services contract is adaptable for use for a broad range of public health services and delivery models. It provides a framework to hold providers to account for the delivery of these services to achieve improved health outcomes.

‘Integrated sexual health services: a suggested national service specification’ is to help local authorities commission integrated sexual health care and can be used alongside the non-mandatory public health services contract.
