answer text <p>The Government has mandated local authorities to commission comprehensive open access sexual health services. Local authorities are best placed to understand and meet the public health needs of their local communities. While councils have had to make savings, they have also shown that good results can be achieved at the same time.</p><p> </p><p>The total number of attendances at sexual health services nationally increased 13% between 2013 and 2017 (from 2,940,779 to 3,323,275). To help manage the overall increase in demand, local authorities have been utilising technology to manage lower risk and asymptomatic patients. Free, confidential online services which are convenient for patients are increasingly being commissioned. As these services develop, they also have the potential to reach groups not currently engaged with clinical services.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The healthy pupils capital fund (HPCF) is a one year fund of £100 million in 2018-19.</p><p>Existing mechanisms for school condition funding have been used to allocate and monitor the HPCF. Local authorities and large multi-academy trusts have received an allocation from the HPCF (£62 million). The funding can only be used for capital projects and responsible bodies are required to report on how they have spent their HPCF in the same way they report on, and alongside, their school condition allocation.</p><p>Single and small academy trusts and sixth-form colleges were able to bid for a share of £38 million of the HPCF through the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) 2018 to 2019. All responsible bodies are required to sign up to terms and conditions which state that funding can only be spent on what was applied for before the first payment is released. Once underway, all CIF projects are required to submit regular monitoring reports to the Department for Education. At the end of the project, a final completion certificate is required before the final payment is released.</p>
