  • Overall there has been a 17% reduction in consultations for contraceptive management with GPs and practice nurses from 649,504 in 2003/2004 to 536,508 in 2007/2008.

  • While there are year on year fluctuations, primary care workload for contraceptive management has decreased among both men (39%) and women (17%) during the past five years.

  • The number of consultations with GPs was over two-fold higher than those with practice nurses; this is primarily due to practice nurses without specialist training being unable to prescribe certain contraception directly.

  • In women, the decrease observed during the previous five years is primarily due to a reduction in the number of consultations in those aged less than 25 and those aged 25-34.

  • In men, whilst the numbers of consultations increased between 2006/2007 and 2007/2008 in all those aged less than 40, the overall reduction observed was due to a reduction in consultations for those aged over 40.
