Society of Consultants and Lead Clinicians in SRH Event - 15 March 2019, London


  • Public Health
  • Leadership, Management & Governance

The Society was set up in early 1994 by 10 consultants and leads in Family Planning (as it was known then) to act as a support and networking group. The Society met for the first time in November 1994 near Oxford and was attended by 13 of the then 18 consultants.

The aims of the Society are to act as a mutual support group, exchange views, work with the Faculty and look at terms & conditions of service, something the Faculty could not do. The Society now meets annually.

 This highly popular non-clinical event offers sessions for Consultants and Lead Clinicians in Sexual and Reproductive Health and the feedback each year is always excellent.  The content of this meeting is very relevant in supporting Consultants and lead clinicians in their daily role. 



9:45 - 10:30 GUM CAD database – Hamish Mohammed, PHE - SHRAD - Colleague, PHE This session will be an update on recording activity and how services are paid. The information is highly relevant for service planning services including budgeting and negotiation with commissioners.

This interactive session will explore successes and challenges that sexual health services have faced under the headings: funding, integration, staffing and skill mix, hosting trust (NHS/community/acute/third sector). The emphasis is on how services have responded successfully, strategies they have put in place and solutions they have found to challenges
