Every GP practice in the UK is to receive a campaign pack to help educate women about the range of contraceptives available to them.

The campaign, launched by the fpa (formerly the Family Planning Association), is entitled Finding the Perfect Partner and will run from the 9-15 February.

Each campaign pack will contain leaflets and posters for waiting room displays, as well as a briefing for health professionals.

Julie Bentley, chief executive of the fpa, said: ‘We are delighted that for the first time we are able to provide GPs with our popular campaign materials.

‘As 80% of women get their contraception from general practice it is imperative that our campaign work supports this group of professionals as well as specialist sexual health ones.’
