FSRH welcomes the Health Select Committee’s Inquiry into the impact of the Comprehensive Spending Review on health and social care. Our response is focused on the cuts to the public health. We are extremely concerned that the Chancellor’s announcement of a further 3.9% annual cut to public health budgets, on top of the £200 million previously announced, will have a disastrous impact on contraceptive provision in England.
Today (25.11.2015) in his annual Spending Review, Chancellor George Osborne announced further cuts to the public health grant. This is on top of the recently confirmed 6.2% reduction in Local Authority public health budgets across the country.
How effective is 20mcgEE/3mgDRSP as contraception? 20mcgEE/3mg DRSP is of comparable effectiveness to other combined oral contraceptives. [1,2,3] A large US observational study reports lower failure rates amongst users of a 24/4 EE/DRSP regimen than a 21/7 EE/DRSP regimen. The study also suggests greater contraceptive effectiveness of a 24/4 EE/DRSP regimen than with a 24/4 regimen containing EE in combination with norethisterone.
The FSRH welcomes the publication of the new NICE Menopause Guideline in November 2015 which includes 64 recommendations relevant to UK clinical practice.
