GPs will continue to provide 'potentially indefensible' sexual health care because of the decision to marginalise it as a national enhanced service under the new contract, claim key Government advisers.

A damning report from the Government's independent advisory group on sexual health and HIV expresses

'disappointment' that sexual health care ­ other than

contraception services ­ has been left out of the core of the contract.
