This is the second annual report from the Sexually Transmitted Infection Epidemiology Advisory Group (STIEAG), a group representing clinical and non-clinical staff with an interest in sexual health. It has been produced jointly by Health Protection Scotland (HPS) and the Information Services Division (ISD), both of NHS National Services Scotland (NSS). This combines information from laboratories and Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) clinics, together with more specialised data relating to HIV. The format is similar to last year’s report but includes two additional sections: one on ethnicity; and one on pelvic inflammatory disease and ectopic pregnancy - two conditions which are related and may be long term outcomes of STIs.
Supplementary GUM clinic data tables can be downloaded directly from the ISD website http://www.isdscotland.org/sti
