As set out in the Government Response to the Health and Social Care Committee report on Sexual Health, our priority for the updated sexual and reproductive health strategy is to work with all partners to achieve our ambition that sexual and reproductive health services are more holistic, and that system mechanisms support co-commissioning and joined up patient pathways.

The strategy is in the early stages of development. Details of its scope, engagement with external organisations, timing of publication and implementation will be announced in due course.
