COMMERCIAL: Cambridgeshire Community Services Trust has won a three year contract to provide sexual health services across Cambridgeshire.

The contract, awarded by Cambridgeshire County Council, is worth £3.4m a year and is due to begin on 1 October.

The trust previously won a three year contract to provide integrated sexual health services across Peterborough from 1 July, worth £1.54m a year.

Tracey Cooper, who manages sexual health services for the trust, said the contract would create a “one-stop-shop where people can have all their sexual health and contraceptive needs met in one place.”

She said: “This is the second multi-million pound contract for sexual health services won by the trust in recent months… reflecting our specialist expertise in this area and will see the trust providing sexual health services across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Luton and Suffolk.”

Kilian Bourke, chair of the council’s health committee, said: “We’re looking forward to working with Cambridgeshire Community Services Trust to develop and improve sexual health services throughout the county. 

“This will include modernising services, ensuring that communities across Cambridgeshire have equal access to services and working to reduce health inequalities,” he added.  

“The trust has an excellent track record in delivering these services and their experience and expertise will be invaluable in meeting these challenges.”
