Fears over GP sexual health care
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.
The group set up to oversee implementation of the national strategy for sexual health and HIV said this would allow 'less skilled or aware GPs to continue to practise poor and indefensible medicine'.
