FSRH Position Statement on Contraception

Our beliefs

FSRH believes that contraception is a fundamental human right. Both women and men should have confidential access to the full range of contraceptive methods and services available in the UK (including emergency contraception) through primary care and SRH services.


Our Vision

Our vision is a UK where contraceptive care is designed around the needs of the individual and is of a high-quality irrespective of the care setting in which it is delivered. We believe that all services should provide open-access care with the full range of contraceptive services available, with extended opening hours to ensure access for all. Where an individual’s needs are beyond the scope of what is available in a particular care setting or service, there should be a system of rapid referral in place.
