NHS South Central
We are pleased to be facilitating the NHS South Central Sexual Health Tariff Road Test.
Sexual health tariffs have been developed in London that cover all aspects of sexual and reproductive health. The Tariff represents a more transparent, outcome-focussed payment mechanism than current funding arrangements. It is anticipated that tariffs will drive the modernisation and integration of sexual health services and deliver efficiencies in service provision.
The aims of the road test are
- To raise awareness about the sexual health tariffs
- To assess the pathways, currencies and tariff dataset
- To test the ease of data collection and processing
- To understand the financial impact of introducing the tariffs
The stakeholder event to feedback findings from the sexual health tariff road test in South Central will be on Wednesday afternoon, 24th October, in Newbury.
We are delighted that Andrea Duncan, Sexual Health Programme Manager from the Department of Health and Justine Womack from Public Health England Transistion team will be joining us to update on national policy, share current thinking and to take part in the discussions.
The event will also cover feedback from the road test themes of awareness, accessibility and affordability. There will be an opportunity to discuss your experiences of the road test - from how easy or difficult it has been to return your data to how reflective you think the currencies and prices are of your service provision. We hope that you and your colleagues are able to attend.
The programme can be downloaded below. Please join us for lunch from 12.30pm. The workshop will begin at 1.15pm

We look forward to seeing you next week.
There will be a half day workshop for South Central stakeholders involved in testing the integrated sexual health tariffs. This event will provide an opportunity to reflect on the work to date, highlight any emerging issues and ensure that next steps are focussed and practical.
Early findings offer the opportunity to take a case study approach to assessing the value of the tariff, the implications for future commissioning and the potential for matching activity with local area based needs assessment. We can explore many of the insights as well as the issues, anxieties and concerns that have arisen during the course of the work.
