August 2014 Note
Table 11 is incorrect. Specifically, the figures for IU devices and IU systems from 2006-07 onwards have been swapped around. Please see the 2012-13 report for correct and more recent figures (see link below). We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
This annual report primarily presents information on NHS community contraceptive clinics (family planning clinics and clinics run by voluntary organisations such as Brook Advisory Centres). This has been collected since 1988/89 through the KT31 return, which includes services provided by:
Trusts in NHS clinics and as domiciliary visits
Brook Advisory Centres
Information on NHS community contraceptive clinics excludes services provided in out-patient clinics and those provided by General Practitioners. However, limited data is presented for out-patient clinics sourced from The NHS Information Centre's Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), prescription data from the Prescription Services Division (PSD) and survey data from 'Contraception and Sexual Health 2008-09', a report published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on behalf of the NHS Information Centre.
