Community Pharmacy Sexual Health Offer Published

March 26, 2019

Public Health England (PHE) has launched a resource, aimed at commissioners and other health professionals,  to highlight community pharmacy’s offer for delivering sexual health, reproductive health and HIV services across England. The resource highlights various issues relating to sexual and reproductive health (such as chlamydia screening and treatment, unplanned pregnancies and HIV testing) and opportunities for commissioners.

The report calls for commissioners to recognise the value of community pharmacy teams as a key asset for the provision of the above services, especially given their convenient position and value within the community.

It argues that without community pharmacy integration, people will continue to experience fragmented sexual and reproductive health service delivery, resulting in poor health outcomes, unplanned pregnancies and subsequent personal and societal costs.
