Three councils in Greater Manchester have launched a tender process for their sexual health services, which are currently run by NHS providers.

A notice issued by Stockport, Tameside and Trafford councils said the three year contract would be worth between £10m and £21m.

From 2019, there is an ambition to procure an integrated sexual health service for the whole of Greater Manchester.

The current provider in Stockport and Tameside is Stockport Foundation Trust, while Bridgewater Community Healthcare FT provides services in Trafford.
