These Recommended standards for sexual health services cover 10 aspects of service provision, including guidance on service networks. Recommendations for detecting and managing sexually transmitted infections, contraceptive advice and provision, pregnancy testing and support, and abortion service provision are complemented by others on cross-cutting topics such as sexual health promotion, empowering and involving people who use services, identifying sexual health needs, access to services and the protection and use of sexual health information. Each standard offers an evidence-guided rationale, key interventions, implications for service planning, guidance on practice, and suggested audit indicators.

For providers, commissioners and service users
