HIV Self Sampling Service

HIV Self Sampling Service

Framework 3173
Status: Active

This framework has been created in association with Public Health England (PHE) and English local authorities as a single supplier for an HIV self sampling website, sampling kit provision and testing and results management service.

This is a Public Health England (PHE) framework for an online HIV Self Sampling Service. The service provider is SH:24 CIC. The framework provides a cost effective and clinically robust remote self-sampling and HIV testing service for sexually active individuals aged 16 years and over. The framework also includes an option to add-on syphilis testing and the supply of offline kits should Customers wish to use it. The service will provide signposting to free services for prevention and onward referral for treatment and care following diagnosis. The framework will be contract managed by a steering group led by PHE, which includes representatives from English Local Authorities and ESPO.

The Framework is primarily intended to be accessed by Public Health England during centrally funded periods of national campaigns and English local authorities; however, it is open for use by any public body/contracting authority being either:

a) Public Health England;
b) any local authority in England;
c) the NHS Commissioning Board;
d) any clinical commissioning group, NHS Trust or NHS Foundation Trust in England.

What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • This PHE framework is supported by a steering group with a broad range of specialist expertise.
  • The service provides an additional option for engaging hard to reach, higher risk populations that are particularly worried about stigma and discrimination.
  • The framework will support national and local campaigns
  • This framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • The supplier was assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability.
  • What you see is what you pay – there are no additional charges.
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions to underpin all contracts so no need to worry.
