As part of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) action plan, the Department is currently reviewing the model sexual health service specification, which takes account of people who may face additional barriers to services such as migrants and asylum seekers. Publication of the service specification is due in 2023. Under the oversight of the HIV Clinical Reference Group, NHS England are also currently reviewing the national service specification for adult HIV services, which sets out the standards of care that HIV providers are expected to meet.
