|27 Feb 2018, 3:36 p.m.||Human Papillomavirus: Vaccination||Mrs Sharon Hodgson|
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to ensure a high uptake in the HPV vaccine across all the regions of England; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Steve Brine)
NHS England works in liaison with Public Health England to deliver the human papillomavirus vaccination for girls, and closely monitors the uptake rates for the programme.
Local NHS England commissioners have access to uptake rates within their area, and work with the providers, schools and healthcare professionals to improve coverage, sharing best practice where relevant.
