Human Papillomavirus: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health

UIN 207584, tabled on 1 September 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, which providers are commissioned to deliver the human papillomavirus vaccine; whether each such provider is a GP practice, an NHS organisation or an independent sector organisation; in which area of the UK each such provider operates; and if he will make a statement.

The human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) vaccination programme is primarily delivered through the school health childhood vaccination programme and therefore by the providers commissioned by NHS England Area Teams. Provider information and contractual information is not held centrally but determined locally.

General practices also deliver a small number of HPV vaccinations where individuals may have missed the opportunity to be vaccinated at school.
