Sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services have remained open during the pandemic, though some services had to temporarily reduce their face-to-face appointments due to health and safety measures.

No national assessment has been made of the level of unmet need across all SRH services in England during the pandemic. The Department’s plans to improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes across the population over the next five years will be set out in our forthcoming sexual and reproductive health strategy.
