Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when his Department plans to hold its stakeholder roundtable events on the national sexual health and reproductive health strategy.
Work on the development of a new national sexual and reproductive health strategy is underway with the Department working with Public Health England, NHS England and Improvement, local government and other partners. Some initial engagement with stakeholders has already taken place and we are also considering the responses to the Green Paper ‘Advancing our Health’ and the suggestions for priority areas for the new strategy we received through the consultation process. Details of the strategy’s scope, plans for more formal engagement with external organisations, including roundtables, timing of publication and implementation will be announced in due course.
