Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the effects of genital wart treatment on the (a) budget and (b) workload of (i) genito-urinary clinics, (ii) cytology and colposcopy services and (iii) GPs’ surgeries; and if he will make a statement. (228564)

No such assessment has been made.

Funding to support sexual health services is not allocated separately to primary care trusts (PCTs) but is contained within the mainstream revenue allocations made to PCTs. It is the responsibility of PCTs to commission the health services they need to meet the health requirements of the local populations they serve.
