Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Request for Information 

We are pleased to respond to your request for information and our response is set out below: 


I’m looking for data related to the use of speculums in GPs surgeries in England. 

I’d like to know: 

  • How many single use speculum are used per year from 2013 up until latest statistics your CCG has to offer
  • The cost of these items in the same years
  • The comparative cost to the metal speculum they replaced
  • Who has your contract for disposing of the speculum
  • Where the speculum are disposed (if you have this information) 


NHS Sheffield CCG does not provide practices with speculums. Each practice purchases their own so we therefore do not hold this information. You would need to contact each practice for this information. 

Infectious waste disposal is commissioned by NHS England. We advise you contact them for information regarding disposal.
