Type: FSRH News and Information

Applications are invited to host and provide the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare’s Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) for three years starting in May 2021, renewable for a further three years.

The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) is a membership body of over 15,000 doctors and nurses, setting national standards for training and practice across the UK. The majority of FSRH members are GPs or nurses who have passed the our FSRH Diploma in sexual and reproductive health (DFSRH). We are also responsible for running a six-year Specialty training programme for doctors aiming to be consultants in SRH.

The clinical guidance produced by the CEU, contracted by us, is key to our charitable aim of advancing medical knowledge and promoting and maintaining high standards of professional practice in sexual and reproductive healthcare.

We have been through a journey of modernisation over the last seven years which has included changes to our staffing structure, communications and governance to achieve our increasingly ambitious plans to lead and support SRH clinicians and practice. We have completed the first year of our five year strategy which you can read more about

The Clinical Effectiveness Unit will play a key role in delivering on our strategy and in particular our focus area of ‘Producing high-quality clinical standards and guidelines for healthcare professionals’ to ensure FSRH members get the support they need in their clinical practice.
