Can’t find a clinic?
If you are unable to find a clinic near you it may be possible to access another NHS service, but not all services can accept clients from outside their area. Many contraception and sexual health services are not aware of the demand for FAMs so either do not provide the service or are cutting existing services. If you can't find a practitioner within your area, try writing to your local service to ask why there is no provision for FAMs.
It is always preferable to see a practitioner in person (particularly for the first session) but where this involves unacceptable distances then Skype, telephone and email support may be an option. If you have checked the clinic list and still require help please contact us. Note that the effectiveness of FAMs is based on studies using face-to-face teaching and the effectiveness of distance-learning is not known.
Disclaimer: Fertility UK provides training and updating for health professionals but practitioners are responsible for their own practice and continuing professional development. FertilityUK cannot accept liability for individual practitioners.
