SRH Leads Forum - Member only access

We have created an invite-only forum for our members who are SRH Leads to meet and talk through best practice during COVID-19 in SRH Services.

Entry to the forum is invite-only and our SRH Leads who are FSRH members were all sent invitations in the last few months.

We have changed the access to our SRH leads forum and you will now be able to access the forum by logging into our website at the top right of the screen, clicking on 'Access Resources' in MyFSRH and from there you will see the forum discussion group under resources.

If you are an SRH Lead and a current member of FSRH and you don't have access to our leads forum, you can get in touch with us to request access by using our Contact Us form here
