Genital mutilation survey opens

GPs in England are being asked to take part in a government study into female genital mutilation.

The government said it hopes to increase its knowledge about women and girls affected by female genital mutilation.

The study will look at how health professionals' training needs could be improved and how sexual and reproductive health services can be developed.

Other health professionals working in maternity, obstetrics, gynaecology, and sexual health will also be involved in the work.

To take part in the study, health professionals should visit the survey home page and enter password fgmsurvey.
