Marie Stopes International and the NHS
Health professionals tell us they value the way we have streamlined sexual health service delivery, normalising it and making it user friendly. We support the NHS by providing centralised booking services to facilitate choice; by managing waiting lists; by offering a range of sexual health services; and by having a team of experts in this area to give advice and assistance
We work with Primary care Trusts, Sexual Health leads and Teenage Pregnancy Coordinators to look at the sexual health requirements of communities. We are uniquely placed to support local initiatives to prevent repeat abortion.

"I have never waited for more than three rings of the phone even during what could be peak times, and the voices that greet a caller always sound helpful and welcoming. I think it must make a difference to clients when they are ringing, and I want to thank them for providing an excellent service. "
Family planning Lead commenting on the Marie Stopes International booking service
"I found everyone involved, from start to finish, extremely helpful, friendly and efficient, but I'm particularly grateful to the vasectomy nurse for making the operation so much less clinical than I'd expected."

"I was very nervous on the day, but the staff were completely reassuring and made me feel at ease immediately. Thank you to everyone who made what might have been a traumatic experience as comfortable and secure as it ever it could be. "
