NOTES

  • SH services are categorised into levels (1,2 or 3) based upon the complexity of the services provided (Level 3 being the most complex). GUMCADv2 surveillance includes GUM services (Level 3) & NonGUM services (Level 2) only.
    • Please refer to BASHH guidelines for definitions of service levels: http://www.medfash.org.uk/uploads/files/p18dtqli8116261rv19i61rh9n2k4.pdf
  • Data for GUM services (Level 3) are sourced from KC60 returns (2006-2008) & GUMCADv2 returns (2009-2015). GUMCADv2 data for Non-GUM services (Level 2) are not presented here
  • Chlamydia test & diagnosis data from community services (Levels 1& 2) are sourced from NCSP & NNNG services (2004-2011) & only include those aged 15-24. Chlamydia test & diagnosis data from 2012 onwards are sourced from CTAD & include all ages. Therefore, community services’ data from 2012 onwards are not comparable to data from previous years. For further data from community services on chlamydia testing coverage, positivity & diagnostic rates (for those aged 15-24)
    • Please follow this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/national-chlamydia-screening-programmencsp-data-tables
  • Chlamydia diagnoses from GUM services (Level 3) that were reported as ‘previously diagnosed at another service’ are excluded from data from 2012 onwards. These diagnoses have been reported via CTAD (Levels 1 & 2) & are already included in the community services data. Therefore, GUM services’ chlamydia data from 2012 onwards are not comparable to data from previous year.
  • The ‘New STI diagnoses’ group was expanded in 2015 to include STI diagnoses that were not previously reported via GUMCADv2. Therefore, data from 2015 are not comparable to data from previous years
  • Rates are calculated using ONS population estimates based upon the 2011 census. Rates for 2015 have been calculated using 2014 population estimates. Ethnicity-specific population data are derived from mid-2011 ONS experimental data
  • Service data represent data from patients accessing services located in England, i.e. data may include people who are resident in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or abroad
  • Residence data represent data from patients accessing services located in England who are also residents in England.
    Data reported with an unknown gender &/or sexual risk may be included in the data total
  • MSM includes men who reported being homosexual or bisexual. WSW includes women who reported being homosexual only
  • With the exception of HIV testing data, MSM & WSW reflect the sexual risk reported at the date of the patient attendance. For HIV testing, MSM & WSW reflect the sexual risk reported over a patient’s entire clinic attendance history
  • With the exception of HIV test coverage, data represent the number of diagnoses & services reported & not the number of people diagnosed or provided services. HIV test coverage data represent the number of persons tested for HIV & not the number of tests reported
  • Data follow calendar years (Jan-Dec), not financial years (Apr-Mar)
