FSRH’s Clinical Standards Committee has put its updated “Medicine Management in Sexual and Reproductive Health Services” out for public consultation.
The standard gives practical guidance on how to complete annual appraisal for those healthcare professionals working in SRH full time and for those where it makes up part of their portfolio of work. Guidance includes advice on completing CPD requirements and core activities relevant to SRH.
Risk Management is an approach to improving the quality and safety of health care by identifying circumstances that put patients and staff at risk and acting to prevent or control those risks. The overall aim of any risk management strategy is to make the effective management of risk part of everyday practice. This can only be achieved if there is a comprehensive and cohesive framework in place, underpinned by clear accountability arrangements across the organisation.

The Faculty’s Service Standards for Sexual Health Services also includes a standard on confidentiality. It is essential, if the legal requirements are to be met and the trust of patients is to be retained, that the NHS provides, and is seen to provide, a confidential service. This is of particular importance to matters relating to sexual and reproductive health and services need to keep up to date with current national policies and guidance.
