Third of women have severe reproductive health problems, finds PHE survey


I think I am really annoyed is the absence of Read Codes for UKMEC (UK medical Eligibility Criteria) for contraceptive use , at least in our computer system , EMIS-web. And the local family planning clinics have a preference to only prescribe progesten-only-pill if the patient asks for oral contraceptive. Of course , there is problem of reduced budget in Public Health England and I wonder if colleagues had not had the time to asssess rhsks for combined pill.
