Chlamydia: Screening

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 26 November 2007, Official Report, columns 235-6W, on Chlamydia: screening, when he plans to establish his Department's development priorities for sexual health payment by results; whether these development priorities will be published; what newly emerging recommendations have been made in relation to sexual health payment by results by interested parties, other than the Health Protection Agency; and if he will make a statement. (174003)

The Department will publish its response to the ‘Options for the Future of Payment by Results: 2008-09 to 2010-11’ consultation in January 2008.

When we publish the Department's response to the consultation we will be making available electronically all the replies to the consultation, so it will be possible to see what respondents have said on sexual health. We will also provide an update on the progress of payment development sites, which are piloting new classifications and currencies for services such as sexual health.
