Update November 2017

EHC – PGDs
The PGD for Ulipristal acetate 30mg tablet (ellaOne®) is currently suspended following a change to its licensing. This means that a PGD is no longer required. Ulipristal acetate will remain part of the commissioned service and will be re activated as part of the scheme once new guidance is drafted. This is expected in early 2018.

The PGD for Levonorgestrel 1.5mg tablet remains active but will be updated shortly to reflect changes in the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) Guidance for EC (May 2017). This is expected in early 2018.

Plans are underway to increase the upper age limit on the EHC commissioned service from age 17 to age 25 years.

A CPS citywide event is being arranged to take place in early 2018 where the updated PGD and guidance will be shared along with information on any changes to age restrictions and safeguarding protocols. There is also an expectation that the sexual health pages on the local version of PharmOutcomes will be activated by then and will be used for EHC activity monitoring.

Condom Distribution

EMERGENCY HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION (EHC) and NEEDLE EXCHANGE (NEX) PHARMACIES with SHEFFEILD CITY COUNCIL / PUBLIC HEALTH – CHANGE IN PROCESS FOR THE SUPPLY OF CONDOMS AND LUBE:  From 31 October 2017, the Wicker Pharmacy will be the sole supply and distribution hub for condoms and lube ordering.  You no longer order directly through Durbin PLC or submit invoices for claims.  This decision has been made following feedback from pharmacies and a request to make the ordering process easier and quicker.  You can email or fax The Wicker to place an order on the linked order form.  Once an order is placed with the form completed correctly, it will be delivered within 2 working days. This service and delivery is free of charge.  Email pharmacy@wicker.co.uk or Fax(0114)272 6431. Please download the ordering process chart and the ordering form, to fax or email The Wicker Pharmacy to place an order.

  • Ordering is per box of condoms/lube, orders can be for more than 1 box.
  • The recommended maximum number of condoms per client is 6 and lube sachets 3.
  • If you are giving condoms to under 18 year olds we ask that you record this on the NHS Health database.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PHARMACIES PROVIDING THE EMERGENCY HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION (EHC) and NEEDLE EXCHANGE (NEX) SERVICES:

Sheffield City Council have recently been made aware that Public Health England will be launching a new sexual health campaign in mid-December aimed at 16-24 year olds to raise awareness of the risk of STIs and increase protection by normalising condom use. The campaign will direct young people to a website linked to the NHS Choices database of local services to enable young people to access sexual health services and free condoms.

The Sheffield Pharmacies who are part of the EHC and condom distribution scheme are included on the database so may see an increase in requests from young people for condoms following this campaign and therefore may need to order more supplies.

SCC currently commission the supply of condoms to young people aged 14-17 requesting EHC. In order to support this national campaign SCC have agreed to commission the supply of condoms to young people aged 16-24 until the end of January 2018. The fee for each condom supply will be £1.60 and records of supply need to be entered on to the form below:

 condoms for 16-24 scheme form

This form should be submitted to Lorraine Gosnell along with your usual EHC claims.

Any questions or issues please contact Lorraine Gosnell, SCC Public Health Lorraine.gosnell@sheffield.gov.uk / Telephone (0114) 2930171.

For Pharmacies not currently signed up to provide the EHC or NEX Services:
