The Contraceptive and Reproductive Health Data Advisory Group have also advised that the format of their NHS Digital SRH services publication will be changing from 2016/17. The final pack will include relevant introductions for each section and will be published alongside the usual Excel tables and other relevant documentation. The publication will cover similar material to that contained in previous reports and will be approximately 20 pages in length. An example of this format can be found below (please note that this example does not include data from 2016/17).
