Hub for abortion and LARC services set to launch

Press/Media: Article/Feature

Description

GPs are at the centre of a major new hub aimed at increasing medical abortion and long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) availability, set to launch later this year.

The “community of practice” is designed to be a one-stop-shop where GPs can find resources, ask experts questions and develop networks with other primary care workers both locally and nationally.

This mammoth undertaking, which is being run through the Centre of Research Excellence in Sexual and Reproductive Health for Women in Primary Care (SPHERE), will also train and equip pharmacists and nurses to ensure that medications and devices can actually be delivered, especially in regional areas.
