Rationale:

Considered:Nov-13

Review Date:Jan-25

Comments:
Patients should be referred to the Sexual Dysfunction Clinic (commissioned from Leger Clinic or Urology DBH FT) for assessment of PE. If appropriate for drug treatment a first prescription will be issued by the Specialist service, who will then assess response to treatment and establish future management plan. If there is a requirement for ongoing prescriptions these should then be provided by Primary Care.
