Welcome to the FSRH
Members survey on the impact of transition to new commissioning arrangements for Sexual Health and LARC in England
In collaboration with BASHH we have developed a rolling survey to collect views and experiences of transition from our members working in SRH, GP and GUM services. We are keen to understand both where the transition is working well and where there are challenges, so that we can learn from best-practice and address issues where they are arising. It is important that we hear about arrangements for LARC Provision in General Practice as well as specialist services.
FSRH is a faculty of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists established on the 26th March 1993 as the Faculty of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care. In 2007 the organisation changed its name to the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare as this was more relevant to the current functions of the specialty.
The Faculty grants diplomas, certificates, fellowships and equivalent recognition of specialist knowledge and skills in sexual and reproductive health care.
As a body it promotes conferences and lectures, provides a clinical advisory service and publishes the Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care.
