Dear Borders NHS Board,

We are conducting a project on service provision for men with Erectile Dysfunction, with the overarching aim of helping to improve services for men across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We would be grateful if you could answer the following questions promptly to help us with our analysis of service provision in your area.

Thank you

The questions are as follows:

1. Does your Healthboard provide an erectile dysfunction clinic and can you provide the total number and addresses of all NHS erectile dysfunction clinics within your Healthboard? If you do not know who should we ask?

2. Does your Healthboard provide psychosexual clinics and can you provide the total number and addresses of all NHS psychosexual clinics within your Healthboard? If you do not know who should we ask?

3. Does your Healthboard provide counselling and sex therapy services and can you provide the details of any NHS counselling services and sex therapy services that treat men with erectile dysfunction within your Healthboard? If you do not know who should we ask?

4. Does your Healthboard provide PDE5-I and if so which one?

5. Does your Healthboard prescribe ‘tadalafil (Cialis)’ tablets for men who experience erectile dysfunction as a result of prostate cancer treatment?

6. At what dose are the ‘tadalafil (Cialis)’ tablets prescribed?

7. Is the daily dose of ‘tadalafil (Cialis)’ tablets (2.5/5mg) available/prescribed?
