Funding for contraception

  • Comment
Money earmarked to improve contraception choice must include provision for training nurses to fit devices, according to experts.

The government is to invest £26.8m to expand contraception options to reduce teenage pregnancies – in particular widening access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) as an alternative to the pill.

But RCN sexual health adviser Kathy French said:'‘There has been a problem with training around LARCs and there is a great need to skill up nurses in their provision to give women more choice.'
It is the only way ministers will succeed in promoting a full range of LARCs, she told NT.
