National FGM Support Clinics LaunchFREE
Join us for the launch of the National Female Genital Mutilation Support Clinics (NFGMSC)
Join us on Thursday 12th September 2019 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm for the National Launch of the National FGM Support Clinics (NFGMSCs). The NFGMSC holistic community-based clinics will offer a range of support services delivered by a multi-disciplinary team including; physical assessments and treatment (including deinfibulation if required), counselling, safeguarding information and access to FGM Health Advocate. There will be onward support to a specialist Consultant if additional management is required. The clinics will be located across each of the regions: North of England, East Midlands, London and the South region.
While the FGM Enhanced Dataset shows the majority of women with FGM who access NHS services are aged between 25 – 35 years and are engaged through maternity services, we recognise a need to provide support to the FGM affected population throughout their life-course. In particular, we wish to support younger women (18 – 25 years) and also those women who might have long-standing and chronic health concerns outside of pregnancy.
The NFGMSC clinics will also provide a much needed way for us to research ways to improve the lives and services of all women living with FGM.
They will each run either weekly or fortnightly on walk-in, self-referral and referral basis.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE NATIONAL LAUNCH OF THESE NATIONAL FGM SUPORT CLINICS.
