Costs of cutting contraceptive services

NHS efficiency savings could potentially add £612.8 million to NHS costs by 2020, according to a new report.

Reforms to contraception and other sexual health services could lead to a significant increase in the number of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. The report also projects the economic impact of improving access to contraception services and argues that savings could be made to the NHS, public health spending and wider social expenditure costs.
