Family Planning

Volume 463: debated on Thursday 19 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (a) full and (b) part time family planning clinics there were in each health trust area in each of the last five years. (150973)

The information requested is not held centrally.

The Department only currently collects aggregate data from family planning clinics at primary care trust (PCT) and national health service trust level. As such we cannot identify data on numbers of individual clinics (of which there are many) within these organisations.

Data at PCT and NHS trust level are published in “NHS Contraceptive Services, England 2005-06” and a copy of the latest bulletin is available in the Library. The information is also available at:
