Standards of care republished in better visual format

The EBCOG has set up a working party to look at various models of health service delivery, both within EU28 and beyond in order to address these issues. Following extensive discussion and consultation with stakeholders, including input from European organisations representing women‟s interests, the Working Party has produced this document outlining the standards of care for various clinical conditions which affect women throughout their lives. 

These standards define a roadmap of quality service underpinned by clinical governance, safety and patient experience. The standards cover 25 key clinical areas including sexual and reproductive health, fertility regulation, the prevention and treatment of female cancers, benign gynaecology and access to emergency gynaecology treatment.
