Sexual and Reproductive Health

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard wrote to Steve Brine about sexual and reproductive healthcare services

The college's letter outlined the "disrupted, disconnected and ultimately disappointing experiences for patients" when accessing sexual and reproductive healthcare services in England. 

We have released a new report on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in the UK

We have found that there are significant obstacles preventing GPs from delivering the truly patient centred service that they aspire to. The report identifies these key areas and makes recommendations as a result of its findings. This report is endorsed by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare.

On the 18 of February the RCGP submitted written evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry into female genital mutilation (FGM).

2010 Consensus statement: The role of the GP in maternity care 

In 2010 representatives of the RCGP, Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) met to develop a consensus statement on the role of the GP in maternity care. 

Informed by the findings of a 2009 discussion paper published by The King’s Fund, the three Colleges agreed that GPs have an important role in maternity care, and those who wish to provide the care must maintain competence. In all other circumstances collaboration and communication between all members of the maternity team is crucial in delivering woman-centred care.
