To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the NHS England PrEP Impact Trial Update - April 2019, what assessment he has made of the reasons for the finding that 37 councils in England have not provided additional places on the PrEP Impact Trial; and if he will make a statement.
On 30 January, my Rt, hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced that the pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) Impact trial would be expanded. Rollout of additional places on the trial is now commencing. However, participation in the trial is on a voluntary basis for both clinics and local authorities.
