This publication primarily covers contraceptive activity taking place at dedicated Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services in England, as recorded in the Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Dataset (SRHAD), a mandated collection for all providers of NHS SRH services.
Data from GP settings and pharmacies is not included (unless otherwise stated).
People attend SRH services for a variety of reasons, but the main focus of this report is contraception.
Latest available year of data is 2019/20 unless otherwise stated.
Data is for SRH services only unless otherwise stated.
5% of females (aged 13 to 54) used an SRH service for reasons of contraception
46% uptake of long acting reversible contraceptives
A proportion that has been rising steadily over the last ten years
38% uptake of the contraceptive pill
This is down from 45% in 2014/15, but still the most popular type of method
46% fall in emergency contraceptive items provided over the last ten years
Also a 56% fall in those prescribed at other locations in the community (2009 to 2019)
