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 2020/21 unless otherwise stated.
Data is for SRH services only unless otherwise stated.
24% fall in contraception-related contacts with SRH services compared to 2019/20
This is a fall of 312,477 contraception-related contacts
46% uptake of long acting reversible contraceptives
This is unchanged from the previous year
39% uptake of the contraceptive pill
This is down from 45% in 2014/15, but still the most popular type of method for SRH service users
45% fall in emergency contraceptive items provided by SRH services compared to 2019/20
There was also an 18% fall in those prescribed at other locations in the community
