IMPORTANT HCC Sexual Health Service – EHC 2024

For those providing EHC through the HCC Public Health Services contract, we hope that you have now had the opportunity to review and sign the new PGDs for Levonorgestrel and Ulipristral, reflecting the change that provision of EHC is no longer capped at age 24 years and under. If you have not received the new PGDs, please contact

The new PGDs are to be used alongside PharmOutcomes template ‘EHC Service 2024’. If you believe you should have access to this template and are unable to see this on your PharmOutcomes system please contact

If EHC is being dispensed to a service user of 25 years or above, please ensure that PGDs HCC202402v1.0 commencing 1st April 2024 are signed. If the PGDs have not been signed treatment can only be provided to service users under 25 years of age under the existing PGDs (HCC202010v2.5)

Please be reminded that it is a legal requirement for pharmacists to read and sign the new PGDs reflecting these changes before EHC can be dispensed to service users of 25 years and above under this contract.
Please also be advised that template ‘EHC 2022’ on PharmOutcomes will no longer be available from 30/04/24.
