The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) welcomes the opportunity to submit a response to the consultation ‘Regulating healthcare professionals, protecting the public’ by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).
We are the largest UK multidisciplinary professional membership organisation representing more than 15,000 members working at the frontline of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (SRH) in a range of settings in the community and primary care. Our members are SRH specialists, GPs, nurses, midwives, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals delivering services commissioned by local authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England (NHSE) and Public Health England (PHE).
Our goal is to ensure that high standards in SRH are achieved and maintained through appropriate funding and commissioning to ensure the population can access services which realise our Vision for high-quality and holistic SRH across the life course.
We are responding to this consultation in our capacity as the professional membership body providing a range of training and qualifications in SRH, including developing and managing the Community Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (CSRH) Specialty Training Programme. As such, we are focusing on the questions directly relevant to us.
