RCGP Curriculum - 11 Sexual health

This section of our curriculum guide refers to statement 11, Sexual Health, produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

GPs have an important role in the management of sexual health problems in partnership with other members of the primary healthcare team and specialists. GPs and primary healthcare teams are ideally placed to take a holistic and integrated approach to sexual health. Education must promote learning that integrates different disciplines within the complex team of the NHS.

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
