    Regular Contraception user requests declined over the 5 years - another reflection of reduced access to sexual health clinics and GPS?

    Thank you for the above article. It was noted that over the 5 year period the percentage of consultations for patients who used regular contraception compared with no regular method reduced by a statistically significant amount ( 44.2% to 33.9% p <0.001). A possible explanation for this could be reduced access to clinics and Primary Care in Wales, as England with pressures on all health services. I would welcome any moves in my area of Wales for CPs to provide oral hormonal contraception.
