To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what funding mechanism he plans to use for the routine commissioning of PrEP.
Answer (Jo Churchill)
The Department is continuing to work closely with NHS England and NHS Improvement, Public Health England and local authorities to plan for routine commissioning of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) from April 2020. NHS England and NHS Improvement have already agreed to fund the on-going costs of drugs for PrEP going forward. We will provide information on how other elements of the programme will be funded shortly.
