Survey on impact of cuts to local public health budgets

In March-April 2016, MEDFASH conducted a short online survey find out how Government cuts to local authority (LA) public health budgets have affected and will affect local sexual health, reproductive health and HIV services.


The majority of responses were from service providers and gave a picture of cuts around the country to most types of LA-commissioned service.  The greatest impact of cuts appeared to be falling on preventive services, those targeting the most vulnerable, and the training and education of the workforce.  The report also highlights concerns about the morale of the workforce.
