FSRH Annual Review 2021

2021 has been a continued year of challenges; many of us have had to think outside the box in order to deliver our services. What has not changed is the need for good sexual and reproductive healthcare across the life course, for all people.

FSRH CEO Gary WalthamThis year, we have adapted the way we work to continue to deliver support, guidance, training, advocacy and more to healthcare professionals across the country and beyond. From our successful Hot Topic events, to campaigning for over the counter progestogen-only pills access, and our wide-reaching telemedicine campaign, we have been working hard to support our members and their work in every way we can.

I would like to recognise and remember Jane Hatfield, our first CEO of the FSRH, who sadly passed away from ovarian cancer in May. Jane was a passionate advocate for women’s healthcare, as well as other charitable issues. Jane loved working with FSRH’s members, who shared her hunger for the organisation to realise its potential, ultimately improving the care patients receive. In particular, she spearheaded the organisation’s policy and influencing work, raising awareness of often-neglected areas in women’s healthcare by championing the voices of frontline healthcare professionals. That FSRH is now widely considered to be the leading voice in SRH in the UK is tribute to her craft.

My sincere thanks to all of our members, trainers, staff and those who participate in our committees and FSRH Council. We could not do this vital work without your support and expertise.

We look forward to what 2022 brings, and we will continue to work towards a world where sexual and reproductive healthcare is accessible for all.
