PROCUREMENT: Derby Community Health Services Trust has won a contract to provide sexual health services alongside Derby Hospitals Foundation Trust as a subcontractor.

The contract from Derby City Council involves sexual health testing and treatment, plus family planning and contraception services.

Derby Hospitals FT chief executive Susan James said: “The new service puts a larger emphasis on sexual health promotion and targeting high risk groups so there will be a greater emphasis on outreach roles. Staff will be working towards becoming dual trained and able to cover multiple working roles to ensure a flexible and sustainable workforce.”
